I took my rxd lunesta a little late and have to wake up at 5

Customer Question

Hi I took my rxd lunesta a little late and have to wake up at 5 and haven't been able to sleep is there anything I can do or take to counteract the lunesta. I'm prescribed adder all
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: 10mg adderall twice daily but took it last at noon. I have anxiety insomnia but today I have a new job interview which I'm assuming as to why I couldn't sleep. Yes I have a psych and pcp and have discussed this many times. He doesn't want to prescribe benzodiazepines but normally I sleep decent with lunesta unless I sheet anxious about waking up early
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?
Customer: I've had trouble sleeping a very long time gotten worse last couple years.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I suffer from depression but he's aware of that. Usually I take my lunesta much earlier and it works I just us school work and forgot till later

Hi, I am an American Board Certified Neurologist with experience in treating all neurological and all other medical conditions including the concerns of countering the effects of lunesta which was taken later than your usual time you have mentioned here, and I am very glad to help you with your health concerns.

If possible you may take an extra dose of Adderall. You are not non high dose of Adderall. You can take an extra dose, and this is the best way to counter the effects of Lunesta. Adderall highest dose per day is about 60 mg/day, you are on 20 mg/day now, so if you wish you can try an extra dose x one time to overcome the sedative effects of lunesta.

Please let me know if you have any further questions, and if you feel you have received the answer to your question please rate me to credit for the time and effort put by me in answering your question.

Best regards,

Neuro Doctor
