Which is better for sleep and starting sleep Ambien or lunesta (eszopiclone)?

Which is better for sleep and starting sleep Ambien or lunesta (eszopiclone)?

Try other means 1st: The best sleep is natural sleep. If you're having trouble sleeping, try simple changes: don't go to bed if you're not sleepy, avoid caffeine and alcohol, and don't exercise late in the day. Stay off your computer or phone late in the evening; bright screens can interfere with natural sleep cycles. Try meds only under a doctor's care and for occasional, not daily use. Good luck! ...Read more

Do nonbenzodiazepine z drugs like lunesta (eszopiclone) and Ambien disrupt sleep architecture?

Do nonbenzodiazepine z drugs like lunesta (eszopiclone) and Ambien disrupt sleep architecture?

Yes-with chronic use: Good question. The "z drugs" disrupt sleep less than benzodiazepines but there is evidence that there is some disruption with chronic use that becomes a big problem when people try to stop taking these drugs.

Antibiotic effect: Imagine millions of bacteria where, in a wave of antibiotic,- most of these bacteria explode, with their guts and toxins spilling out all over the place- it's a total mess. This mess attracts thousands of white blood cells, and an inflammatory response ensues that cleans this mess up- resulting in increased tenderness, redness, warmth, and swelling. The area will improve in a few days. ...Read more

I am currently on Simponi (golimumab) for UC and now have a sinus infection. I started Amoxicillin 6 days ago and still have pain where I can't sleep. ?

May be resistant: Your sinus infection may not be responding to the amoxicillin, and you may need an antibiotic that will better cover your infection. OR your infection may be due to a virus (which arenot cleared with antibiotics) and just needs to go away on it's own. With your immune system being a bit weaker than others, I would get seen by a doctor again. ...Read more

I have two teeth broken in half and they are clearly infected. Daily pain, sometimes impossible to sleep. Spent $300 only gotten 10 days worth of amoxicillin. Insurance will not cover root canals until October (2 months away). What should I do?

I have two teeth broken in half and they are clearly infected. Daily pain, sometimes impossible to sleep. Spent $300 only gotten 10 days worth of amoxicillin. Insurance will not cover root canals until October (2 months away). What should I do?

Infected teeth: Antibiotic is only short term treatment to prevent spread of infection while you cure the infection with root canal/crown or extraction/implant/crown. You really can't wait for insurance to kick in. Talk to Dentist about staged treatment or payment plan. Contact Social Services for reduced fee clinics. Seek treatment at a Dental School. You have a dangerous infection. Seek immediate care. ...Read more

No Vicks!: Stay away from vicks! it can cause changes in your nose making your nose chronically congested. You need to see a doctor as your symptoms may be allergic in which case antihistamines or corticosteroid nasal sprays or combination sprays may be of benefit to you. You also might have an infection which is not sensitive to Amoxicillin and in this case a stronger antibiotic is indicated. ...Read more

Is it ok to take an OTC sleep aid while on 10mg of prednisone, three times a day I have tonsillitis, so i was put on prednisone and amoxicillin. The prednisone has caused me lack of sleep.

Is it ok to take an OTC sleep aid while on 10mg of prednisone, three times a day I have tonsillitis, so i was put on prednisone and amoxicillin. The prednisone has caused me lack of sleep.

Most : Most otc sleep aids contain diphenhydramine, if this is what you plan on taking, then there is no interaction between the two (diphenhydramine and prednisone) and you should be fine. Insomnia is usually not a side effect of prednisone; consider other reasons. If this problem persists bring it to your doctor's attention. Best of luck. ...Read more

Had a sore throat so took amoxicillin & Zyrtec (cetirizine). Sore throat gone, but mucus tickles my throat when sleep and I cough. No mucus comes out. What to do?

Thai Health System: The health system in Bangkok is fantastic - I can personally recommend the clinic at Chulalongkorn University. There are of course others with great credentials - and the costs are much, much cheaper than in the West. Someone should look in your throat for post-nasal drip, possibly evaluation for gastric reflux as well (esp. if you might be overweight?). ????????? ...Read more

I have strep throat and I'm on amoxicillin, I took Tylenol (acetaminophen) to reduce my fever, melatonin to help me sleep and Claritin because allergies. Will I die?

No, not today: On this earth, we are all born, live a short while (in geological time), and die. That said, people in the U.S. don't die from strep throat... unless one is the unluckiest woman in the county and gets some sort of expanding abscess in the back of the throat. Typical doses of Tylenol, (acetaminophen) Amoxicillin, melatonin, and Claritin don't kill people either. So, that means today is not the day to go. ...Read more
