    It works. Helps with the pain because I cannot stay awake. It completely knocks me out. I take 20mg per day. Cant keep my eyes open. Wish that side effect didn't exist because I have nothing else that bothers me about the medicine.

    I just started taking this a week ago for pain. I take 10mg per day, it has helped some with the pain, but I wake up sleepy and it hangs on all day and when the tiredness starts to wear off late in the evening then it's time to take another one.
