From this study (3 years ago):
I have been taking Lunesta as sleeping aid for about 3 months and the last few days it has completely stopped working. I even questioned whether I had even taken it or not. My doctor added Gabapentin 100 mg to take with it and last night I finally slept and woke rested.
From this study (5 years ago):
wondering if the two drugs can be taken 2 hrs apart in the evening
