Scared about Lunesta...Please Read
I had a traumatic miscarriage seven weeks ago, was severly anemic, etc. I am in therapy and it is helping for the grief. The doctors put me on valium, xanax, and antivan all to which I had reactions and was pulled off. I have not slept in weeks. I have no problem falling asleep, but can stay asleep. I will wake up after two hours and sometimes not fall back to sleep at all. I think the most I ever got was six hours and that was once. I mange about four. Last night was three. I am exhausted, shaky, and feel out of it. The doctor gave me Lunesta and I am having anxiety just over taking it since I am sooo sensitive to medications, but I feel I cant recover from all this without the sleep. I felt so depressed and weird after taking the valium, xanax,ativan not to mention the other side effects that I am afraid the Lunesta will make me feel the same since it effects a certain part of the brain. Since I am so sensitive they told me to take just 1mg of the Lunesta to start. I am going to take it tonight. This insomnia really has taken over. I feel like I cant function as a normal person due to lack of sleep. I guess I just need some reassurance. Its been a tough couple of months.
