Works if I take it about 2 hours before I need it to "kick in." Have to time it carefully because if I take it too late I have a lot of trouble getting to sleep, and if I take it too early I get extremely groggy in the middle of whatever I'm doing.

In 4 months of treatment, I have vomited several times for no reason,was nausiated most of the time and had a bad case of Dry Mouth.

I am moving on to a medication that does not include vomiting in the side effects.
