The Harsh Lunesta Side Effects They Don’t Tell You About … Until It Is Too Late!

I suffered from insomnia for more than ten years, and I tried many different remedies to try to cure my sleeplessness. When my doctor prescribed Lunesta for me, I was hopeful and optimistic because he told me that Lunesta is the most commonly prescribed sleep medication in America. However, taking it was one of the worst mistakes of my life. Lunesta’s side effects were disastrous for me, and I have since learned that many people who take it experience similar results.

Lunesta is a sedative, also known as a hypnotic drug that is commonly prescribed as a sleep treatment. It affects chemicals in your brain that may be unbalanced and cause insomnia. While it is the most commonly used prescription medicine for insomnia in the United States, Lunesta’s side effects often prove to be harsh and unrelenting.
 

Lunesta's Side Effects: Severe & Worse

Lunesta often causes a severe allergic reaction. Also, many users of Lunesta have engaged in certain activities like eating, making phone calls, or even driving–and later have no memory whatsoever of doing these actions.

Lunesta’s side effects often impair your reactions or your thinking. Some people become agitated and even aggressive.

Many users of Lunesta have thoughts of hurting themselves, when they previously never experienced any thoughts of suicide.

Some people begin hallucinating and seeing or hearing things that are not really there. Amnesia and forgetfulness are common if you sleep less than 8 hours.

Another side effect of Lunesta is that it is habit-forming. People usually experience withdrawal symptoms after having been taking it for only a few days. It is classified as a “drug of abuse.”

And, of course, these common side effects are not mentioned much by doctors or drug companies. They will tell you that Lunesta is virtually safe and non-addictive when used properly. In other words, they will lie to your face so they can make more money.

 

The "Less Serious" Side Effects Of Lunesta

Many Lunesta users complain about day-time dizziness and drowsiness, and commonly report that they feel like they have a hangover. A lot of people cannot concentrate and experience memory problems.

It is not uncommon to suffer headaches, stomach pain, constipation, and skin rashes. Almost every Lunesta user experiences dry mouth and an unpleasant taste on their tongue.

Many people suffer from anxiety, nervousness, and depression. An analysis of clinical trials submitted to the Food and Drug Administration found that sedative hypnotic drugs more than doubled the risk of developing depression! Other studies have concluded that users of sedative hypnotic drugs have a markedly raised suicide risk.

All in all, from my experiences and research on this drug, I have found that Lunesta’s side effects are far worse and much more harmful than using other, safer remedies for insomnia. I cured my insomnia without ANY drugs – much less dangerous ones like Lunesta, and so can you.

I was given samples. I drank a glass of wine to relax. Couldn't sleep an hour or so later took Lunesta. I left my house, and drove down the street and wrecked my car. All with no memory of even leaving the house. I got a DUI ticket. doctors and people should be warned that some people can not take this drug.

  1. I was prescribed the 3 mg dose of lunesta and ended up with horrific urinary issues. After 4 weeks I finally found a urologist that put 2 and 2 together and realized that it was the lunesta causing all of my problems, my symptoms started out as frequent urination but I had no it infection. As my symptoms got worse I started taking lunesta more often just so I could sleep. I ended up with severe pain and an ulcerated bladder . These side effects are all listed in the fine print. It is unfortunate that the doctor who prescribed me the drug–an obgyn–was unaware of theses side effects– I could have been diagnosed so much sooner.

    • Cathy,

      Wow, that is a true horror story. I'm so sorry that you had such a horrible time. But how fortunate that you realized what was causing your symptoms so that you could stop the urinary problems. If they had dragged on for years they might have caused serious damage.

      Thanks so much for sharing. Perhaps you have saved some other people from such misery.

    • this is So helpful. i just started lunesta once in awhilea few weeks ago and was taking more of it in the last week and I suddenly got a urinary tract infection that is getting worse. now i knowhat to do.

  2. This is what I did to help my sleep…zinc, Vit A, 10,000 IU daily, 2000mg of fish oil daily and 5000IU of vit D3 daily. Not eating gluten/dairy/soy/sugar and taking vitamins/good oils and LDN which helps to block Celiac, EDTA/DMPS IV chelation to remove heavy metals blocking my thyroid and Armour thyroid medicine and more. Low oxygen in my brain caused me not to sleep. I now need bioidentical hormones also to help me sleep. Sleeping drugs did not help me sleep and didn't let me drive the car well the next day. Tests to diagnose Celiac may not work. Best wishes.

  3. What is LDN?

    • LDN: "is short for Naltrexone Hydrochloride (C20H23NO4-HCl), an opiate antagonist. Naltrexone was approved by the FDA (at a 50mg dosage) in 1984 for opiate addiction, and again in 1995 for alcohol abuse. At a much lower dose (1.75-4.5mg), it has been gaining popularity as a treatment for symptoms of auto-immune disorders such as Multiple Sclerosis. Low Dose Naltrexone is administered orally, usually in capsule form."
