Good Evening,


It would be of utmost importance to let your prescribing physician know of this. People respond differently to the medications you are taking.

You may inquire of your physician if they would suggest different medications in the category of lunesta or if they would suggest a more natural approach like ODC Melatonin.


Please consult with your doctor or if you need to call the pharmacy and inquire of possible side effects do not hesitate to do so. Since it is a weekend, your physician may not be available right away. Another option would be to phone your health insurance and get some feedback from their health coach nurses.


It is always a good idea to get the medication monitored and managed by the prescribing MD.
