(es zoe' pi clone)Eszopiclone may cause serious or possibly life-threatening sleep behaviors. Some people who took eszopiclone got out of bed and drove their cars, prepared and ate food, had sex, made phone calls, sleep-walked, or were involved in other activities while not fully awake. After they woke up, these people were unable to remember what they had done. Tell your doctor if you have ever had an unusual sleep behavior while taking eszopiclone. Be sure that your family or caregiver are aware that these symptoms are serious and to call your doctor if they occur. Stop taking eszopiclone and call your doctor right away if you find out that you have been driving or doing anything else unusual while you were sleeping.
Before taking eszopiclone,
- tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to eszopiclone, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in eszopiclone tablets. Ask your pharmacist or check the Medication Guide for a list of the ingredients.
- tell your doctor and pharmacist what prescription and nonprescription medications, vitamins, nutritional supplements, and herbal products you are taking or plan to take. Be sure to mention any of the following: antidepressants; certain antifungals such as itraconazole (Onmel, Sporanox) and ketoconazole (Nizoral); antihistamines; clarithromycin (Biaxin); certain HIV protease inhibitors such as nelfinavir (Viracept) and ritonavir (Norvir); medications for anxiety, mental illness, or seizures; nefazodone; olanzapine (Zyprexa); rifampin (Rifadin, Rimactane); sedatives; other sleeping pills; tranquilizers; and troleandomycin (TAO) (not available in the US). Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for side effects.
- tell your doctor if you drink or have ever drunk large amounts of alcohol and if you use or have ever used street drugs or have overused prescription medications. Also tell your doctor if you have ever thought about killing yourself or tried to do so and if you have or have ever had depression, mental illness, lung disease or breathing problems, or liver disease.
- tell your doctor if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. If you become pregnant while taking eszopiclone, call your doctor.
- talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of taking eszopiclone if you are 65 years of age or older. Older adults should not usually take eszopiclone because it is not as safe or effective as other medications that can be used to treat the same condition.
- if you are having surgery, including dental surgery, tell the doctor or dentist that you are taking eszopiclone.
- you should know that eszopiclone may make you drowsy during the daytime, may decrease your mental alertness, and may increase the risk that you could fall. Take extra care to be sure you do not fall, especially if you get out of bed in the middle of the night. Do not drive a car or operate machinery until you know how this medication affects you.
- do not drink alcohol while you are taking eszopiclone. Alcohol can make the side effects from eszopiclone worse.
- you should know that your mental health may change in unexpected ways while you are taking this medication. These changes may be caused by eszopiclone or they may be caused by physical or mental illnesses that you already have or that you develop during your treatment. Tell your doctor right away if you experience any of the following symptoms: aggressiveness, strange or unusually outgoing behavior, hallucinations (seeing things or hearing voices that do not exist), feeling as if you are outside of your body, memory problems, new or worsening depression, thinking about killing yourself, confusion, and any other changes in your usual thoughts or behavior. Be sure that your family knows which symptoms may be serious so that they can call the doctor if you are unable to seek treatment on your own.
