Medical professionals who are critical of Lunesta feel that some of Lunesta’s claims may misrepresent the drug.
Specifically, Lunesta’s claim to effectively aid sleep has been brought under scrutiny.
While some other sleeping medications are focused exclusively on either helping individuals get to sleep or helping them remain asleep, Lunesta professes to do both.
When taken as directed, an individual with insomnia symptoms consumes Lunesta directly before going to bed.
Selective GABA reuptake inhibitors like Eszopiclone bind to certain GABA receptor sites and partially block the function of GABA receptors, resulting in sedation.
