Reviews for Edluar
"Other medications took 1 to 2 hrs to work, this drug works within 45 minutes, taste is very good can wake up no problem, this drug was impossible to get for about 6 months, I wish another manufacturer would make this because this drug is so expensive! Even the copay is high. This edluar is same as lunesta but fast acting, all other sleep meds are time release. No side effects!"
"Excellent product, but I have had difficulty getting the prescription filled for months due to a manufacturer backorder. This drug was an excellent addition to my bedtime routine. Get in bed, hold it in your mouth, and asleep within 20 minutes. This greatly reduced the chances of getting out of bed and doing something stupid, like with generic Ambien. Generic Ambien takes too long to onset and can feel gradual, which is confusing and might lead to me "forgetting to go to bed". But the Edluar solved that problem because it is fast acting. Only issue is the manufacturer backorder and high cost."
"This is the best medication for insomnia I have taken. It generally took about 15 minutes after I took the medication I was asleep. I no longer take this medication because it is astronomically expensive with no co-pay assistance card. If they could get the cost down I would switch back."
"I tried edluar for insomnia and found that it works very quickly about 15 minutes using the sublingual pill. Not a bad taste. I prefer it when I need to get to bed quickly. It can give u munchies if u try to fight the sleepiness. But great for flying or car trips. Doesn't always last more than 5 hours but quick onset is worth it. Take and go to bed immediately for it to work properly!"
"I have taken OTC to ambien and lunesta. There is no similar comparison. This is my miracle drug for insomnia. The bad taste is actually to help you remember you took the drug. It was designed for those who wake at night and need to go back to sleep thus again helping remember you took it. You can break them easy and can take 1/2 before bed and one if you wake up. Use the free trial and down load the coupon card for the rest of the year. You will not be disappointed in the medication. Make sure the pharmacy "hooks" it to the script every time. They seem to forget. Too expensive of a tier as it is!"
"I've had insomnia since my back surgery 2 years ago and tried several sleeping pills like Ambien and Lunesta. Edluar 10mg is the only one that works for me. I take it every night as long as I live."
"Edluar has worked better than anything I've tried. It works fast and I'm even dreaming again, which I wasn't with a few others. I actually break mine in half and only take a half dose. Still works great. Taste is not bad. Have had some issues with availability though. I hope they're not taking it off the market."
"After my doctor prescribed Edluar 10MG due to my complaint of only getting 4-5 hours sleep because of the pain I have been experiencing. I now get a full 7-8 hours sleep. I awaken feeling refresh. I do not feel tired. I feel a lot better than before. I was having a very difficult time sleeping past 5 hours since November 2009. "
"Edluar is a much better option to Ambien because it's fast acting and, thus, helps to prevent many of the embarrassing Ambien issues (such as Ambien-eating, Ambien-emailing, etc.). It may help to prevent abuse because it acts so quickly. The taste is not bad and quickly dissolves. Most people should not have issues with the flavor unless they are sensitive to taste. I would not recommend this for long-term use, but it would be a solution for people who have insomnia issues and MUST fall asleep quickly because they have something important to do the next day."
"It does work very well. It's quite similar to Ambien, but the taste bitter, and makes it very difficult to let it dissolve under your tongue for a few minutes without vomiting. Aside from that, though, it takes only minutes from the time it finishing dissolving before it kicks in. Pop the pill in your mouth, and 5 or 6 minutes later, you won't be able to keep your eyes open. It's pretty impressive, actually."
"It works just as well or better than the regular/tab pills. It's onset it fast, 10 minutes after completely dissolved under the tongue *sub-lingual* obviously. It has a bad sweet taste but I got used to it quickly. Takes about 8 minutes to dissolve. There's no heaviness like the CR's or anything like that. Seems it does the trick for easier and faster sleep."
