Not much: This will have the primary effect of one dose but will cause no harm or problems. Simply a wasted extra pill.

Lunesta (eszopiclone) while flying: Hypnotic meds can be useful on long flights, but there are caveats 1) Never take a medication for the first time on the plane. Adverse reactions happen. Better that they happen on the ground. 2) Take a low dose. While the idea may be appealing, it is not safe to be sedated so much that emergency responses are not possible. 3mg is a high dose for Lunesta; 1mg would be a better choice.

No: These meds have similar use and taking them together could be too sedating. Do not take together!!!

It could suppress your respiratory drive and cause cessation of breathing during sleep. Dangerous.

Recommend no: For a few reasons i recommend no. 1) people have fallen asleep very quickly and aspirated (choked on) food and 2) works better without food in stomach, faster absorption.
