    Question Lunesta hang-up?

    Has anyone heard why Lunesta is being held up getting onto the retail market? My doctor is ready to write a script and WalGreens has it listed and the price, but Sepacor just keeps delaying. What gives????

    Re: Lunesta hang-up?

    Hey King, I surely do hope that March 25th is the date. I do too much sleepwalking when I take Ambein to be safe. This acts on the same receptors, but via a different route. WalGreens keeps telling me that they check on it everyday. (unsure whether they really do or not) My doc says no drug reps have been in pushing it, so he thinks it couldn't be very soon. OOOOOooooo. I have Fibromyalgia and arthritis and cannot sleep over 30 min to 1 hours without waking from pain. I have not taken any Ambein since Christmas, (I bought a lot of JUNK off the internet while sleepwalking). I also get amnesia BAD. I can do all kinds of things and not remember a thing the next morning. Ekk!

    Hi,

    Do you guys know when Lunesta is definitively coming out? I know I thought it was March 25th, but now I don't know anymore. None of the pharmacies I have called have heard of it. What's going on? Let me know if you guys know anything!

    Thanks,

    King of Wizardry

    Oh King, I was hanging on your date of March 25, hoping you were a drug rep or some such guy!! Like I say, WalGreens has it listed and priced. Right now their computer spits up an "out of stock" notation.

    I wish I knew! I asked my doctor about it last week, and he hadn't heard anything or seen any drug reps bringing samples around yet.

    Hey guys,

    I hope you're hanging in there. I heard on a different message board that Lunesta could be released the week of the March 28th? Again, I have no idea if this is true...but I hope it is...it was supposed to be released in mid January!

    I called Sepracor on Friday and they said it should be out sometime this coming week...let's hope this is the truth! I guess we'll see!

    Hope you're right, King of Wizardry. I was given Ambien but it doesn't seem to work for me. I must have strange brain chemistry.

    Here is the "official" press release:

    Re: Lunesta hang-up?

    YES! I got mine today as well. I hope it turns out to be all I have wanted it to be!
    My insurance didn't pay for it (BCbS of OK), but I imagine they will. It cost me right at $114 without. But, I am NOT complaining.....

    Re: Lunesta hang-up?

    Glad to hear that it's finally out!!!!!! I will pick mine up tomorrow. I was wondering if you guys could let us know how Lunesta has worked for you tomorrow?

    First, tell us your sleeping problem. 1. trouble falling asleep or staying asleep and for how long it's been happening?

    Also, tell us which dosage of Lunesta you are taking. 2. 2 mg or 3 mg????

    Lastly, how did it work for you???

    Sweet dreams!
