Once again I am trying to get off the Lunesta since I have been taking it for 5+ years. I am splitting a 3mg into half and have been taking that for 6 nights now with very little sleep. I am tying to combine it with melatonin but that doesn't seem to help. Is there any chance at all I will be able to get off this or at least sleep with half the dose.? I want to be totally off and have rushed this before and ended up going back on so I want to take it slow but am not sure my body will be able to ever sleep on the lower dose. I lay for hours and finally sometimes fall asleep around 2 or 3. It has been horrible...The doctor gave me klonopin to supplement if I needed but I don't want to end up getting hooked on that as well. I have tried numerous herbals but nothing even makes me drowsy. I don't want to be dependent on these anymore because if I ever ended up not having them at some point I would never sleep... Anyone successfully been able to come off either ambien, lunesta or any of the others? I know I will have to go through many sleepless nights but I don't want to go through this all for nothing...Help..sleep has always been my worse problem with either hangover from too many drugs, unrefreshing sleep..no sleep even on pills. I have also tried relaxation tapes...music...everything else you can think of. I have read lunesta is not addictive but my body certainly depends on it every night. I haven't had the feeling of real sleepiness since I started on these pills. Help out there anyone?
