What should I know about Lunesta before taking it?

Lunesta works by reducing brain activity, so it is important that you only take it if you know that you’ll be able to sleep through the night. You might experience hallucinations or confusion if you have to wake up early. Lunesta works best if you take it before bedtime, and avoid taking it with a heavy meal.


Lunesta may cause some side effects, and you should become familiar with these before taking this medication. Report any side effects to your doctor.
