I've had severe trouble falling and staying asleep do to GAD, and Severe Pain. I don't do well with 99.9% of anti-depressants. This drug however, has been a life saver for me I get a good nights sleep and am rested in the a.m. I take 400mgs at night and have had zero side effects for over 3 years.

This is the only med that has been effective for me to get a full night's rest for six years straight! I started at 100mg and am down to 50 mg.
