I used this treatment short term for severe sleep problems related to Fibromyalgia. An added side benefit was it made me lose 20 lbs. in the short amount of time I took it! I don't know if all people should expect the same result, though because we all have different body chemistries. It was extrememely expensive, though. I'd say it was worth it in the short term.

I was on this for about a year. The sleep actually made me feel rested about 60%of the time. I would recommend this for treatment of sleep disorders or fibro....i seem to have both. I had to get off of it due to an accident and surgery that followed. I needed to know what I was feeling. Once recovered, I will ask to be put back on this drug.

Product did relieve some discomfort, but felt (uneasy) with walking. Carefully watched each step - some fibro fog feelings.
