  • Perceived effectiveness for Unrefreshing or poor sleep: Major
  • Side Effects: Severe
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It really did help me sleep. Well it helped me fall to sleep, but I always woke up feeling majorly exhausted like I haven't slept all night. It was supposed to help me sleep and it did, but the problem was even after I awoke I still had that "drunk" feeling like I still needed to lay down and sleep. I really didn't like taking it, it became to much of a habit and not to mentioned within just a few months I gained over 50 pounds. That's not good for anyone and I am already "considered" obese, so I had to put a stop to it. It was one of those things that wasn't worth taking. I'd rather go without sleep than take this medication again.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Bipolar Disorder: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This drug had the effect of making it very difficult to wake up in the morning to get to work. When I was depressed, it was very effective and my body adjusted to the sedation effects. As my depression lifted, I experienced more and more difficulty in waking up. Also, it tended to have the effect of urinary retention. A plus when incontinence becomes an issue.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Urinary retention, Morning sleepiness if taken too late in the evening
