My doctor gave me samples of Lunesta 3 mg----- I haven't taken any-----(don't like drugs) but tired of lying awake til the wee hours of the morning.

I've NEVER had sleep problems in my life (until the past 2 years)----

You could have set a bomb off in my room and I wouldn't have woke up ! ! Had no trouble falling asleep, or staying asleep---

I miss those days. :(

You are very welcome :)

You can always google "gluten free drugs" and it is usually the first one that pops up. Its maintained by a pharmacist. No one site is 100% accurate, so use it as a guide. If you find discrepancies or updates, his contact info is listed so please share with him so in turn, he can update it.

This kinda ties into another post about sleep-eating. My doc gave me some Lunesta about a year ago...just some samples...about a weeks worth. I took them and could NOT figure out WHY I would wake up in the morning with the NASTIEST TASTE in my mouth!?!? I told the doc about it and she said that it was the Lunesta...sometimes it causes a whole "the cat pooped in my mouth" nastified taste thing. So anywho--I went ahead and stopped taking it.....but as a sidenote: The week I took the Lunesta, I also noticed that something ELSE was amiss. I had recently bought a brand new HUGE can of mixed nuts from Sam's Club...I was making Chex mix later that week. I have NO recollection of EVER opening that can of nuts....but when I took them out of the cabinet to make the Chex mix...the can was half EMPTY. I quickly took off to the back of the house to yell at my husband for eating all the damned nuts.....but he SWORE that he didn't TOUCH THEM. The only other person in the house was my 2 year old....and I hardly think that she could've gotten out of her room in the middle of the night, climbed to the top of the pantry and grabbed the GINORMOUS can of mixed nuts....all without me knowing.

Anywho---that's my Lunesta experience....I swear that they put LSD in that stuff! :lol:

Well let me tell you about my sleeping pill experience. :lol: I don't take sleeping meds. I was in the hospital 4 years ago to check out my chest pain. Anyway, the first night they gave me a sleeping pill because I was pretty anxious. They were drawing blood samples every 6 hours for 24 hrs to check my cardiac enzymes. When I went to sleep. I slept right through the lab tech coming into my room, putting a tournequet on my arm and sticking a needle in me to draw blood. The only way I knew it happened was when I woke up in the morning, and I had a cotton ball and tape over my vein. This freaked me out. I worked 20 years in hospitals, and I never knew any patient (except those in a coma, or "out to lunch" ) to sleep thru a needle stick. :lol: Needles to say, I'm leary of sleeping pills.

FREAKY!!!!!!!!!! I don't BLAME you for being a little wary! :blink: I've slept thru a shot....but I was on a LOT of morphine...(pancreatitis/gall bladder--ugh). I can take Ambien without any ill effects....I even pop right awake after about 7 hrs....but that Lunesta....that's some freaky stuff. I wonder about that new stuff....it starts with an "R" like rozeram or something like that....? I wonder if that stuff works well.....hmmmm :unsure:
