Lunesta 2 mg Tablets
When treating insomnia with Lunesta® (eszopiclone), the typical starting dosage for most young or middle-age adults is a Lunesta 2 mg tablet taken immediately before bedtime. However, your healthcare provider will consider several factors before determining your dosage, such as your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking.
For elderly people, the starting Lunesta dosage depends on what type of insomnia is occurring. For elderly people who have trouble falling asleep, the starting dose is Lunesta 1 mg, taken right before bedtime, but for elderly people who have trouble staying asleep, the starting dose is higher (a 2 mg Lunesta tablet, taken right before bedtime).
Your Lunesta dosage should not be taken with food or right after eating a meal. Lunesta works quickly; make sure that you are ready for sleep before taking it. Do not take the medication before driving or performing any tasks that require concentration.
