Well, it all started so innocently. I had trouble sleeping and after months of taking handfuls of over-the-counter sleep meds, I finally convinced my doctor to give me some Lunesta samples.
At first, I only took them as directed, 1 at bedtime. They worked great, except for that God-awful metallic aftertaste. I swear this pill is great for weight loss- I could not eat for 2 days after taking Lunesta...food tasted awful.
Then, I had major joint replacement surgery and was prescribed 10/325 Norco, Before long, I was popping Norce, xanax, and lunesta, literally in handfulls. That's when things went downhill...fast. The days and nights melted into each other. I was peacefully high and getting careless. This is the point I decided it would be fun to grab a handful of lunesta, just to see what would happen. Well.....I would happily describe what happened.....but I don't remember much at all.
This pill is truly a powerful hypnotic and amnesia-causing drug. I have only vague recollections of ANYTHING that happened. My trips on lunesta and hydrocodone were not truly 'trips' NOT at all like having a few beers, or smoking weed. The best way to describe it is like 'being in a dream'. The next day, when I finally totally woke up....the previous day seemed like a dream. The hydrocodone added some euphoria while I was on lunesta, but it did not negate its effects.
My husband would mention things we did the day before- and my memory was blank. I was told things I did, people I talked to, where we went for dinner. Apparantly, I was completely functional at the time. I had brief flashes of recall..but they faded quickly. Thank God I did nothing horrible, that I regretted hearing about.
I cannot truly recommend this drug as a fun, recreational substance, especially after I read similar experiences to mine. For me, I still take a few lunesta alone, out of boredom, but am very careful not to take too many.
I want to remember my life....not sleepwalk through it.
