In brief: Lunesta (eszopiclone)

Is a non-benzodiazepine hypnotic agent used for insomnia.
The recommended dose is 2–3mg immediately at bedtime. Anything over the recommended dose is an overdose. Your body may react to an od differently than someone else, so there is no certain way to tell what constitutes an od and what future consequences you might experience.
