I have been on Lunesta for 6 years now and it hasn't worked well for about 8 months. I mean I was waking up to 5 times a night including only 1 hour after taking it. I didn't feel good in the mornings either. I took the plunge last night and didn't take one. I only took 1/2 klonipin 1mg instead since the night before I had only 2 hours sleep (with lunesta!) I needed to sleep. Anyway...I had the best sleep I have had in about 2 or 3 years....I woke only once because of the cat and slept until 7:30 which is unheard of for me. I do feel a little drowsy this morning but I am hoping that will go away as the day goes on. I know klonopin is not a good option either but I am extremely excited that I could even sleep at all without a lunesta. So I am on a quest to sleep on my own at some point....has anyone successfully quit sleeping pills (lunesta...ambien..etc) and able to sleep on their own? I really feel the lunesta was having a huge impact on how I felt during the day so this is a very big day for me! I have wanted to quit for so long because I had a feeling it wasn't doing me much good.. If anyone has any suggestions of natural things to try I would like to hear..I can't take anything that raises serotonin as I am on Wellbutrin. I have tried in the past with no success....melatonin...valerian...benadryl..kavinace..5HTP...I think there are more but can't remember...I have tired everything a regular drug store sells.... Thanks!
