Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

The most effective sleeping pills for your chronic insomnia that you can try are eszopiclone (Lunesta) or ramelteon (Rozerem). These have been shown to increase the sleep onset and duration when other medications are not helpful. You should consult your doctor regarding these medications.

Take care.

Doctor: Dr. Ravoof, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying and for the generous offer for bonus.

You should take eszoplicone in consultation with your doctor and the starting dose is 1 mg orally at night. Dose may be increased if required to 2-3 mg at night if 1 mg is not very effective.

Take care.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
