This medication prescribed by my physician did work for me. Although, there were some side effects that in my case I could live without. For the first 2 days i was fine...afte the 3rd day I woke up to a erection that would not go away. It lasted for over 5 hours. I finally had to resort to placing ice directly onto my erection. So i will not be using this medication again.

I will continue for a few more days but I cannot work in this state.

My injuries included a mild concussion: I was unconscious for about ei ... Show Full Comment

I started this at 50mgs. and finally began to SLEEP ! After on it for a few years, I needed to add xanax ( 1 mil. ) to get to sleep. I will sleep at least 5 hrs straight --usually 7 on this mix. I tried one night to skip the X-- and I tossed and turned the whole night. I have taken as much as 300 mil. per day for a month ( for depression ) with no side effects. It is a real blessing to go to sl ... Show Full Comment
