Even though this medication is prescribed for sleep I do not get what I consider to be full benefit from this drug. It still takes 2-3 hours for me to fall asleep and I only sleep about 5 hours total. This is in spite of the dosage being raised several times.

Finding the right doseage is the key to using this. Most use 50mg or 100mg but I've found that 150mg gives me a great restful sleep of at least 8 hours. Thus far, I have had no serious side effects.

i have been taking 50mg a night for 2 weeks and it is not doing anything to help me fall asleep. I will take it and lay in bed for hours before I finally drift off to sleep. Going to give it another 2 weeks because it can take up to 4 weeks to be fully in your system. That's when you know whether you are going to benefit from the medication or not. So far it has been a NOT.
