Evaluations


Jul 29, 2010

  • Perceived effectiveness for Insomnia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Advice & Tips: Within 30 minutes of taking it, my nose was so stuffy that I had to breathe through my mouth, making it difficult to fall asleep. Then I used nasal spray to stop that, and within another 20 minutes, my feet were tingling. It felt like RSL in my feet. It was so bothersome, that I couldn't fall asleep for several hours. My feet still tingled the next day and I woke up feeling extremely groggy. I called the doctor and was advised to stop taking it. I'm going back to cyclobenzaprine and going to bed earlier.
Cost: < $25 monthly
