Best Time to Take Lunesta
Lunesta® (eszopiclone) is a prescription sleep medication. Some people taking Lunesta may wonder, "When is the best time to take it?"
Your dosage should be taken right before you go to bed, as it begins to work right away. Because Lunesta works so quickly, make sure that you are ready for sleep before taking it. Do not take the drug before driving or performing any tasks that require concentration.
Your Lunesta dosage should not be taken with food or right after eating a meal. For Lunesta to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. The medication will not work if you take it in a way other than how your healthcare provider has prescribed.
If you are unsure about anything related to your Lunesta dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking the drug without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
