  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Although this medicine works good for sleep if I happen to wake after taking it I do and say things that I do not remember in the A.M. It can be very scary to have others tell you things that you don't remember at all. DO NOT drive after taking this medication.
