Hello,

Both are used in the treatment of insomnia and belong to the drug class of miscellaneous anxiolytics, sedatives and hypnotics.

I have not tried either of them , but click on the links to read comments and reviewa of people who have used them:

Take care,

There's very little difference. Both medicines help you to fall asleep. They will not keep you asleep for longer. Generally Lunesta can be used for a longer period of time than Ambien. Ambien seems to become less effective over time.

From what I have read lunesta is not as addictive as ambien.
Tonight is my first try with lunesta.
Ambien I took years ago and had horrible side effects. I was sleep walking, sleep eating, even got into my car and slept in it apparently. Thank goodness I didn't drive. So I promptly quit taking it.

I have been reading on here for several cases of this the sleep walking and what not, granted I've only taken it once before until tonight but I did not experience that and now I am concerned. I just posted a question I hope will be answered soon. =)
