I had been on Lunesta for many years and it never helped but my doctor insisted that I continue taking it. These headaches have migraine intensity but aren't migraines. Are the headaches possibly connected to the discontinuing of the Lunesta? I was on 3mg.
I would talk to your pharmacist. They can offer very helpful information. Or your doctor too, but pharmacists know far more about medications. Some medications you absolutely should not suddenly go off of them or they can cause serious harm. However, if it is not harmful, you can wean off more gradually or perhaps you can shorten the time to wean off of it by experiencing horrible headaches. I would want more gradual, myself, but I think that you need more information. I hope that you will feel better very soon. Horrible headaches are the worst.
