Eszopiclone is the generic form of the sleeping pill sold under the brand name Lunesta. It is primarily used to treat people suffering from sleep disorders such as insomnia and in some cases obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Eszopiclone has been known to help you fall asleep faster while simultaneously helping you to stay asleep longer. It belongs to a classification of drugs known as non-benzodiazepine sedative-hypnotics. Non-benzodiazepine medications are a newer class of medications most commonly known as Z drugs. This classification of drugs is regularly used for the treatment of insomnia.
Insomnia is a condition that affects over a third of the global adult population. It is characterised as difficulty falling asleep and remaining asleep throughout the course of the night. Often patients wake up several times during the night and have trouble falling asleep again.
The conditions can either be acute or chronic, depending on how long it persists. If you have had this condition for longer than 3 months, it would be considered chronic. On the other hand, acute insomnia has an underlying cause that keeps you awake. For instance, if there was a particularly shocking event that causes mental disorders like anxiety and depression, it is not uncommon for it to keep you awake at night.
Acute severities usually resolve on their own, assuming there is an underlying cause, and once that is overcome, you should be able to sleep peacefully again. Still, not everyone is the same. Acute insomnia could develop into a chronic version in some, where the causes are gone, but insomnia persists.
