I take 4mg at night. It isn't very fast acting...it relaxes you and helps you sleep longer but is has a pretty slow onset like Valume but if you take it with an antihistamine (Vistral or Diphenhydramine) it will make it come hit faster and harder. Just run it by your doctor first as these medications are OTC.

This medication seems to get to me sleep but does not keep me asleep. i am up at least once or twice in the middle of the night. There is one benefit, that when I try to go back to sleep ProSom assists me in falling back to sleep. Other sleep aids would keep me up once I was up. It still takes a while before kicking in to fall sleep.

i used this over 10 years ago and I want to try it again as I now have more severe insomnia. I can't shut ddown my thoughts to get me to sleep. but take it even i hour before sleep and make sure you don't have to leave home for about 10 AM , It does makeme feel sluggish. It did worl and I want my new Doctor to let me try it again.

I have been taking 3mg for quite some time and it worked pretty well but now I am starting to feel that half asleep feeling during the day I read some other peoples' reviews and they seem similar. No other sleep med. works for me I may just have to lower my dose.

Comment:
This is an effective sleep medication 2 mgs for me...no side effects. workes within 30 min or so. This is more of a medication if you have anxity and your mind cannot relax or turn off. It relaxes you so you fall into a gentle sleep. I have had jobs where I worked 8-4, 4-12....and the 12-8 shift. And I suffered from insomnia besides the shift chages. This was years ago. I was prescribed Secon ... Show Full Comment
