Lunesta (eszopiclone): The recommended dose is 2 or 3 mg, if you do not have liver disease, otherwise 1 mg is safer, if you need more than 3 mg it is better to see sleep doctor to find out the cause of your insomnia.

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.
