Lunesta 3 mg Tablets
If you have insomnia, a healthcare provider may prescribe Lunesta® (eszopiclone). Your Lunesta dosage will depend on several factors, such as your age, other medical conditions you may have, and other medications you are taking.
Although the recommended starting Lunesta dose for most young or middle-age adults with insomnia is 2 mg of Lunesta taken right before bedtime, some people (especially those with trouble staying asleep) may need a starting dose of a 3 mg Lunesta tablet taken right before bedtime. For people who start at lower doses, the doses can be increased to the 3 mg tablet if needed.
Lunesta works quickly, so 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. Your Lunesta dosage should not be taken with food or right after eating a meal.
