i have tried the following sleep meds with no success seroquel, trazodone, hydroxyine, ativan, melatonin, and tylenol pm, and am currently taking klonopin for panic attacks and when i first started it it worked good and i got to sleep early and now its not working and the doctor doesnt like using ambien so can i ask for lunesta? is it addictive? and is it effective? i have seen some adds on tv and wondering if its possible to add with my current meds which are tramadol, hydrocodone, clonazepam, and naproxen.

Added 2 Nov 2010:
also i wanted to ad, i heard that lunesta works on the same gaba receptors as benzodiazepines so if i have a tolerance to klonopin will i have a tolerance to the lunesta as well?
Added 4 Nov 2010:
so does any body know if their is cross tolerance from klonopins to say ambien and lunesta?
Lunesta (eszopiclone) is a prescription sleep medication used for insomnia treatment. It is part of a class of medications called sedatives or hypnotics.
Lunesta is part of a class of medications called sedative/hypnotics, which are known more commonly as sleep medicines. Like many other sleep medications, it is a controlled substance and may be abused.
Its rather very unfortunate that you have to take so many meds in aid of sleep & panic attacks .
Did a Interactions check on the meds that you take, its rather long would you please read on: https://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=703-0,2874-0,1690-0,2221-0,1030-1621
Is it absolutely essential for you to take the meds listed? Sorry not being inquisitive but I am concerned for your welfare, please take care, get well & be safe!
Lunesta can be addicting and if you got a tolerance to others you may get one pretty quick with Lunesta. I use Remeron for an antidepressant and sleep and it also helps some with my anxiety along with my Paxil in the morning for the depression/anxiety. The Remeron helps sedate me enough where I can get some sleep along with Prazosin for nightmares, hope this helps some, marjorie zych
