    This works very well for REM sleep which is why it was prescribed for me. Restorative sleep quality. Wake up refreshed most days (if not working). Before taking it, I just skimmed the surface of sleep all night, never really falling deep into sleep. However, been taking long term and it may be the cause of my high blood pressure which developed somewhat soon after starting it more than 5+ years ... Show Full Comment

    I was prescribed this drug for frequent headaches. I took a quarter of a 25mg. pill. Before I took this medication I had lost 40 lbs. I have since put at least 20 lbs. back on, wake up feeling like I've been hit by a truck, very groggy. Headaches have abated but I don't like how I feel or the weight gain at all!

    I was prescribed this for a spasmotic colon. Initially 25mg per day then increased to 50mg per day. While it helped with controlling the daily diarrhea, it makes me very tired. It is hard to get up and get going. I'm not sure what to do, it works great for controlling my colon but I feel like a zombie all day.

    On 10 mg/day for head and nerve pain after concussion, headaches, and to help sleep. It has done nothing for me except cause problems. I sleep less, have problems urinating, and extremely sore breasts. Don't take it!

    Doc prescribed this for my insomnia. Didn't work at all. Got even less sleep with this stuff. As my grandson says "I was wired".
