Yes: Actually, Ambien and Lunesta (eszopiclone) are benzodiazepines they have more specific activity for selective receptors directed at sedation, and have a short half life or time in your system, but they affect sleep architecture just like other benzodiazepines or alcohol, just in a milder manner. ...Read more

Bup & sleep apnea: Sleep-disordered breathing (eg sleep apnea) is more common in opioid (mu receptor agonist) users. However, the generalization hasn't been proven scientifically with buprenorphine, a partial mu receptor agonist. A poorly designed 2012 study showed an association between bup & sleep disorder breathing. A link may exist, but likely lower with bup than other opiates. A sleep study would be needed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: Generally speaking, Lunesta (eszopiclone) may be better for sleep onset, trazodone for sleep maintenance, though there might be exceptions.

5 hrs sleep= easy to wake but not refreshed. 7+= headaches, oversleeping, coma like. Worse with Trileptal (for bipolar). Blood sugar crashing @ night?
Blood sugar: Possible. One quick way to tell - don't eat any refined carbs (bread, regular potatoes, etc.) for dinner. At bedtime, have a snack of some celery and peanut butter. The peanut butter "burns slowly" in your body. If you feel better in the A.M. - that was it! you should also have a fasting Insulin checked in the A.M. To see if you are "hyperinsulinemic." that could mimic what you describe. ...Read more
