Helps me sleep- I started with two pills but a month later, I need 6 to get the results I used to get when I used to take 2. Quite addictive because without the drug, I can't sleep. I know it's dangerous- waiting to find a medicine because soon enough, I'll start to have stomach bleeding.

I've had no side effects; occasionally, I feel groggy in the morning, but this occurs when I don't sleep enough. I sometimes wake at night but have had no problems falling asleep again.

I drank this medicine when I had pain and I always have trouble sleeping. The question I would like to ask is if it is ok to drink this medicine with nortriptyline 10mg together. I had a lot of pain and it didn't seem like Advil PM was working so after a couple of hours I drank the other medicine. The only side affect I got was a sore throat and headaches that are worse.
