The FDA Cuts Starting Dose of Sleep Aid Drug Lunesta in Half

11.19.2017 | Logan Blare

The FDA Cuts Starting Dose of Sleep Aid Drug Lunesta in Half, Citing the active ingredient zolpidem, such as Ambien and Ambien CR.

The FDA is continuing to evaluate the risk of impaired mental alertness with the entire class of sleep drugs, including over-the-counter drugs, and will update the public as new information becomes available.

This concern has prompted the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to halve the recommended dosage for Sunovion’s sleep aid Lunesta (eszopiclone).

Is it bad to cut sleeping pill in half?

Breaking ambien cr in half

So I have been breaking the sleeping pill and just taking half at night. has told me before to break them in half, its fine as long as its not the Ambien cr version.

Doc has told me before to break them in half, its fine as long as its not the Ambien cr version.

They have gel capsules available in Tylenol pm. I like them because they take effect quicker!.

I did love Tylenol pm though! Especially with all the pain that would keep me awake :).

Ambiem is safe and often prescribed during pregnancy. I wouldnt recommend Tylenol pm for daily use as sleep aid, but unisom is great!. If you feel fine with taking it, it isn't a big deal.

It's fine as long as it isn't a gel or capsule. Other meds you don't want to break is anything that is extended relief.

:( I have never tried Tylenol pm. @everyone I use to take unisom but I always felt so groggy in the morning from it. I wonder if that would help?. Is it a liquid or pill? Sometimes my back gets pretty sore at night. I would prefer not to take anything lol but I am already so uncomfortable at night.

I am now 30 weeks and can't sleep at night!! So I have been breaking the sleeping pill and just taking half at night. Which works good. Is it safe to break in half I have never really thought about it. I stopped taking zolpidem the generic version of Ambien when I found out I was pregnant.

Ask you ob about ur other sleeping pills just to be safe. You can take tylenol pm to help you sleep as well and they are safe for baby.

I found taking the Unisom earlier and fighting to stay awake for a little bit lessened the groggy effect the next morning. Tylenol PM was my go to when I was just too uncomfortable. I took both unisom & Tylenol PM while pregnant.

I would recommend Tylenol PM over a prescription sleep aid.

I am on 10 mg zolpidem and was wondering if i could split it in half for 5 mgs? i know you can't split ambien cr, but am not sure about the.

There's other factors, however, like time release and whatnot, so to be certain, I'd just make a call to your pharmacist and ask. I would assume that you can, as long as it is in tablet form and not a capsule.

Thanks Super Moderator Senior Member Super Moderator Senior Member. I tried taking half of an Ambien CR (I know you aren't supposed to split them). Within three days I was nauseated again. I will talk to my doctor about trying a different Rx. I have will talk to my doc about the ones you suggested Brian. OTC just doesn't seem to work. when I finally fell asleep at some point after 4:30. I am really frustrated. I am a bit stressed right now so I am sure that isn't helping. Last night I was awake from 11:00 pm until 4:30 am.
