Is it true that lunesta (eszopiclone) 3 mg a better alternative when quitting klonopin 1 mg?

Not necessarily: Lunesta (eszopiclone) is a fast-acting non-benzodiazepine sleep agent that shares some pharmacologic action with Klonopin (a benzo).

Ambient versus klonopin (clonazepam) can they be taken together?

Yes, reluctantly: Clonazepam is used for anxiety reduction, it has little sleep inducing effect. Ambien (zolpidem) is for sleep induction, it has little anti-anxiety effect. However, together you could get more than an additive effect, which could be dangerous. Talk to your doctor about the uses for each, then consider trying the one that fits your problem the better. There are other ways to solve these problems as well! ...Read more

Is it safe to take lunesta (eszopiclone) 3mg and ambein 6.5mg long acting together?

Who knows/ best not: There are no systematic studies of the 2 together. So, in one sense - who knows! However, if a recommendation is to be made on the basis of clinical reasoning, I would say it makes no sense to combine these 2 medications, and a person doing so better be ready for s/e that they may not experience on either one alone. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Not good together: They can both cause drowsiness, dizziness, impairment in coordination and slowing of respiration. If you need an anxiolytic you should consider a switch to a shorter acting benzodiazepine such as Ativan or xanax (alprazolam) instead of klonopin. If you are not suffering from severe pain consider a switch to Ibuprofen or Acetaminophen from the percocet. ...Read more
