What is eszopiclone used to treat?

Eszopiclone is a prescription medication that is indicated for use as a treatment for insomnia.

Insomnia is a common condition that makes it difficult to fall asleep, stay asleep, or get enough sleep. Insomnia may affect your health, work performance, and overall quality of life.

Insomnia is a very common sleep disorder. According to the Cleveland Clinic, nearly 70 million Americans are affected by sleep disorders every year. Insomnia, in particular, affects 35-50% of adults. Many people have short-term (acute) insomnia at some point in their lives, which can continue for days or weeks. It's generally caused by stress or a stressful experience. Some people, however, suffer from long-term (chronic) insomnia that lasts a month or longer. Chronic insomnia affects 10-15% of adults.

How does eszopiclone work?

Eszopiclone is classified as a hypnotic/ sedative medication. These drugs work by increasing the activity of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) - the most common inhibitor of neurotransmitters in the brain. By enhancing GABA’s action, hypnotic medications slow brain activity. This can make it easier for patients to fall and stay asleep.

What are the common side effects of eszopiclone?

Eszopiclone has been shown to cause some side effects. If these adverse reactions do not go away within a few days or become severe, talk to your health care provider.

This is not a complete list of adverse effects – though these are among the most common. Seek medical attention right away if you experience symptoms such as swelling, difficulty breathing, rash, weight gain, or hoarseness.

WARNING: The use of hypnotic medication can cause life-threatening sleep behaviors such as sleep-walking, sleep-driving, and other activities while not fully awake. These complex sleep behaviors may result in serious injury or death. If you have a history of complex sleep behaviors, or experience irregular sleep behavior while taking eszopiclone, discontinue use of this medication and consult your health care provider ASAP.

As with all prescription medication, be sure to inform the prescribing doctor about any medical conditions you have been previously diagnosed with and any medication/ supplements you are currently taking before starting treatment with eszopiclone. Eszopiclone can interact with other forms of medication and substances, causing potentially serious side effects. In addition, let your doctor know if you are currently breastfeeding.

Do not operate a motor vehicle or any type of machinery after taking eszopiclone. This drug is fast-acting, and you will begin to feel its effects shortly after taking your dose.
