35 y/o male wondering if anyone has taken Klonopin with Lunesta, and what were the results? Currently on 0.5 mg of Klonopin but it’s no longer giving me the full night’s sleep I need. I get to sleep, then wake up after a few hours. Psych recommended increasing Klonopin dose or adding Lunesta to current Klonopin dose.
I take these 2 meds successfully together: During the day I take 0.5mg Klonopin and evening another one. To keep my anxiety at bay round the clock. There are no addiction concerns here because i have the most severe form of anxiety and insomnia that without these meds I'd be a total suicidal basket case. You're lucky that your doc is willing to try these 2 meds together! They WORK! Lunesta keeps you sleep longer than Ambien, without the awful side effects Ambien has. Try them! You will be off to dreamland for 7-8 hours!

They both create a dependance and eventually you need more for it to work. I experienced the same thing with klonopin I researched and found out how dangerous it is and I'm tapering off it now. I was in tolerance and I'm glad I didn't add more medication to taper off of. Just be careful and good luck
