Lunesta (eszopiclone): Non-benzodiazepine hypnotic used for treatment of insomnia. It belongs to group of drugs called cyclopyrrolones. Discuss with your doctor other alternative sleep medications, such as ambien, (zolpidem) trazodone, dalmane, etc.

INSOMNIA: Best to discuss medication & possible sleep study with your Psychiatrist. If uncomfortable with your Dr. consult another for a second opinion. Have a physical exam by a Dr. to determine if you have a physical illness. Consult with a Clinical Psychologist for psychotherapy with ZOOM. Fears & anxiety could be heightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Stay safe & hopeful to elevate your immune system.
