i was having panic attacks due to heart palpitations, from past 3 months. I was on Anti deps from past 2 months, gradually stopped them. But i have been taking sleeping pills ( zolpidem tartrate) from 3 mnths. Yesterday my psycologist recommended a change in sleeping pill since zolpidem seemed to be ineffective. He prescribed Eszopiclone pills. If anybody has used these, pls let me know how it helps sleep, effectiveness and the withdrawal symptoms? Is it ok to take these for a long term? Answered by Shanta Mokiao 4 months ago.
Contact your doctor if you experience daytime drowsiness, dizziness, or clumsiness; more outgoing or aggressive behavior than normal; confusion; strange behavior; memory loss problems; agitation; worsening of depression; hallucinations; or new feelings of depression. Other, less serious side effects may be more likely to occur, such as headache and unpleasant taste. If these become bothersome, contact your doctor.A problem that may occur when sleep medicines are stopped is known as "rebound insomnia." This means that a person may have more trouble sleeping the first few nights after the medicine is stopped than before starting the medicine. If you should experience rebound insomnia, do not get discouraged. This problem usually goes away on its own after 1 or 2 nights.Eszopiclone may be habit forming. Stopping this medication suddenly can cause withdrawal effects if you have taken it continuously for several weeks. Talk to your doctor about the safe use of this medication.

You have to pass to mattress the equal time each and every night time. Your frame rhythms paintings in case you pass to mattress the equal time. Do this: Wind down earlier than mattress by means of no longer ingesting any colas (caffeine) and smoking. Drink natural teas and lay down with a humdrum guide. In 20 mins you must fall rapid asleep. Keep your room darkish. Buy a small fan and switch it on low. The buzzing will make you drowsy and in case you get up, the buzzing of the fan will positioned you again to sleep. Don't do drugs. You get right into a dependancy, it is steeply-priced, and messes up your frame's rhythm. Do it evidently as above and you are going to sleep a minimum of eight hours refreshed each and every morning. Answered by Joelle Veith 4 months ago.

Sleeping pills like Ambien and Lunesta will knock you out cold, I doubt you will be able to stay up even if you wanted to. I've heard stories where people take a pill, go wash dishes or something and just drop to the floor. I would say get into bed within 30 minutes of taking it. Answered by Cinda Likens 4 months ago.

Asked by Bernita Estain 4 months ago.
I'm assuming you mean a physical model... if not the following will absolutely make no sense! :) It would help if you have a molecular model kit for organic chemistry. If you don't this will be a lot harder and not as stable. You could use small styrofoam spheres, each representing an atom, connected with coffee stirrers / small straws in a pinch. Next, you will need an actual chemical diagram of the molecule, not just the formula. Often, the inserts that come with the medication will show the diagram. Breakdown the diagram into the core structure (usually a central ring or double ring) and all the moieties (i.e. smaller units attached to the core). After this, it's just a puzzle to stick together. If you end up using styrofoam and straw method, you could paint each ball a different color to represent the various atoms (frequently black = carbon, white = hydrogen, blue = oxygen, yellow = sulfur, green = nitrogen) If you use straws and stirrers for the chemical bonds, use the thicker straws to represent a single bond and two stirrers slightly bent out away (think bowlegged) from each other to represent double bonds. I'm not sure if this was what you were looking for... Good luck with the model! Answered by Eryn Roskos 4 months ago.
Is there any real difference as far as effect, between Zopiclone (Imovane), and Eszopiclone (Lunesta)?
Asked by Yun Diangelis 4 months ago.
No the effect is the same, the difference is Zopliclone is a mix of isomers, active and inactive, and the eszoplicone is more of the active isomer. The two agents have not been studied via head-to-head clinical trials to determine if any clinical differences exist (e.g., efficacy, side-effects, etc.). Answered by Christie Junghans 4 months ago.

Just wondering if out of these zolpidem or eszopiclone, which one is more powerful? I already have sleep problems to begin with but usually tylenol pm or melatonin takes care of it but i'm on a rotation that requires me to sometimes have to work 24 hours straight or a night shift. I'm in the Army btw and live in the barracks so loud noises also are part of the problem. I'm just wondering what is a medicine that is stronger than ambien? The doc put me on 10 mg's ambien but so far popping 1 just makes me feel tired. And not tired sleepy. Like the tired you get from waking up from a good nap. I've even tried doubling up the dose once but to no avail. I just need someone who has taken something strong to help me out here. Answered by Livia Poletski 4 months ago.
Its hard to say. Firstly it is more/less impossible to measure the "power" of various drugs. Lunesta (eszopiclone) is certainly more POTENT than Ambien (zolpidem) so 10 mg of Ambien = 1.5 mg of Lunesta. So using the largest dose of Lunesta (3 mg) is equivalent to twice the maximum dose of Ambien. In addition larger doses of Lunesta are prescribed. Outside of the US the drug Imovane, Zimovane (zopiclone) is used instead of Lunesta but they are the same medication however Imovane contains 50% eszopiclone (Lunesta) and 50% is the inactive laevorotatory isomer of Imovane. Basically Imovane is half as potent as Lunesta. But outside of the US the most common dosage of Imovane is 7.5 mg (or 3.75 mg of Lunesta) although it is hardly uncommon for up to 15 mg of zopiclone to be used, equivalent to 50 mg of Ambien. On the other hand it is very rare for more than 20 mg of Ambien to be prescribed. Also keep in mind that Ambien is a short acting hypnotic so it wears off quickly and is only effective for sleep onset insomnia. Lunesta, however, is a longer acting agent and is effective for sleep onset and sleep maintenance insomnia. I think Lunesta is a better medication than Ambien in almost all respects. There are also a number of other good hypnotics. Sonata (zaleplon) is a short acting hypnotic like Ambien that is very effective, it is equally as potent as Ambien. Restoril (temazepam) is an excellent hypnotic and it is the hypnotic I most prescribe. In addition Ambien, Sonata, and Lunesta have not been shown to be more effective than Restoril and several studies indicate Restoril is more effective. Restoril, in many respects, has become the world wide standard of hypnotics. I would say, of the commonly used hypnotics, Halcion (triazolam) is the "strongest." It is very potent, 0.5 mg of Halcion is equal to 3 mg of Lunesta. Halcion is, like Ambien and Sonata, a short acting hypnotic. Typically Halcion is reserved for severe treatment-resistant insomnia. In the United States there are a number of other hypnotics including Dalmane (flurazepam), Doral (quazepam), ProSom (estazolam), Somnote, Aquachloral Supprettes, Noctec (chloral hydrate)*, Seconal (secobarbital)*, Butisol (butabarbital)*, Luminal (phenobarbital)*, Mebaral (mephobarbital)*, and others. Drugs with a "*" are rarely used except in complex, severe, and/or treatment-resistant cases of insomnia. Answered by Shizue Afflick 4 months ago.
