Scary stuff Heed the warnings - e.g., avoid alcohol and taking more than prescribed dosage Has led to bizarre dreams, sleepwalking and potentially fatal bike race accident when the dosage belatedly became effective Not worth the risk Instead try exercise, hot milk and a good book

I took this medicine at 11:30 pm, and woke up in the middle of the night 5 times very abruptly with intense anger, which has never been a problem for me.
