Comment:
I found this worked for my insomnia better than ambien (the ambien CR though is wonderful). I have to take one and a half tablets to feel a bit sleepy, although sometimes even that doesn't do it, but I haven't ever taken more. If you have serious insomnia and are unresponsive to other medicines then one and a half tabs may work for you. I do have a very hard time getting up in the a.m. a ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
It took me 3 nights to figure out I just needed 1/3 of the pill to sleep all night and not feel sleepy the next day. I absolutely love it. I have restless leg syndrome and ADHD so sleeping at night without meds is impossible. I just hope there are no long term effects from using it every night. Does anybody know if there are?

Comment:
Leaves me with 1/2 next day semi-groggy. I use only 1/8th of the tablet when needed. Very effective in producing sleep. History of children expiring on the full dose, esp babies in child care centers. It is a very powerful and effective drug when used correctly.

Beware of the hangover effect! It works very well, however I could not take it on a work night! Maybe half the dose.
