My Politics

I've voted for the Libertarians the last 10 elections for President. I do not believe in the Republinuts or the Democraps, or, the big media that supports them.

Because of the above - my views, IMO, are the real independent; THE `Eagle' views, and not the `centrist' `independent' views of those that alternate between the Jackass and the Elephant.

Thanks for checking out my politics blog.

Lunesta VS Pot As A Sleep Aid

As you know, pot is used by the population for a variety of reasons - from getting high recreationally, to pain relief, as a sleep aid and many other uses. And, to me, one of the very sickest things about nearly all manufactured `DRUGS' are the side effects. And, in this post I'm going to outline for you - so that you know - the side effects of Lunesta - a sleep aid drug. http://insomnia.emedtv.com/lunesta/lunesta-side-effects-p2.html

the most common side effects of Lunesta include:

Unpleasant taste -- in up to 34 percent of people
Headache -- up to 21 percent
Drowsiness -- up to 10 percent
Infections, such as a urinary tract infection (UTI) -- up to 10 percent
Dry mouth -- up to 7 percent
Dizziness -- up to 7 percent
Heartburn or upset stomach -- up to 6 percent
Pain -- up to 5 percent

Other Lunesta side effects (occurring in more than 1 percent of people) include:

Nausea or vomiting
Accidental injury
Decreased libido, also known as sex drive (see Lunesta Sexual Side Effects)
Breast enlargement in men
Painful periods (including menstrual cramps).

There are a number of side effects with Lunesta that you should report immediately to your healthcare provider. These include, but are not limited to:

Chest pain
Anxiety or nervousness
Suicidal thoughts (see Suicide by Lunesta)
More outgoing or aggressive behavior than normal
Strange behavior
Depression (see Lunesta and Depression)
Hallucinations (seeing, hearing, or feeling things that are not really there)
Signs of an allergic reaction, including unexplained rash, itching, hives, wheezing or trouble breathing, or unexplained swelling.

Rare Lunesta Side Effects

There are other Lunesta side effects that can occur. These side effects have occurred in very few people taking Lunesta. For these side effects, it is difficult to tell whether they are actually caused by the Lunesta or something else.
Some of these rare but possible Lunesta side effects include, but are not limited to:
Sensitivity to the effects of the sun
High blood pressure (hypertension)
Decreased appetite or increased appetite
Weight loss or weight gain (see Lunesta and Weight Gain)
Hair loss (see Lunesta and Hair Loss).

So, if you had a choice - knowing that a couple tokes of pot will pretty much send you to sleep at the end of a long day - OR - at taking a manufactured product with these side effects - What would YOU do? How about your congressman?
