> My pdoc only had two of the 3mg and two of the 2mg samples left so that's what I got.
> I took a 2mg last night and I went to bed 90min later and fell asleep with no trouble. I did not wake up, but I did have lots of dreams.
> Tonight I took a 3mg tablet.
> I'm interested to see what people find as far as:
> - time to onset (Ambien was REALLY FAST)

When Ambien worked really well for me - it got me to sleep very fast whereas Lunesta 3mg takes an hour or so
> - duration of action (Ambien wore off in 4 hrs and left me awake at 2 AM)

Duration is MUCH longer = better than Ambien.
> - subjective quality (Ambien just put me out, lorazapam made me fell dull and sullen)

Ambien gave me a more relaxed "falling asleep" whereas Lunesta seems to just make me somewhat "normally" tired (yawn, etc). I don't feel knocked out - but it seems to put me in a deeper sleep than Ambien.

Also - I have NONE of the amnesia effects that Ambien has been known to cause.

> - sleep quality

Still deciding on the sleep quality. I generally think it's very good overall - but I may have sleep apnea (I have a sleep study later this month) so that may be interfering.
> - other weird side effects (bad taste, headaches, itchiness, or ??)

No bad taste as some others have reported. I did have a headache for the first 3 days of taking it - nothing really bad - but annoying. No other side effects.
> Hope others post their experiences with this promising new sleep med.

Great post! I hope others respond as well.
