Advice & Tips: my advice for people, who first start taking this medication is only take one tablet to start with because it can make you very drowsy at first and make you sleep for longer in the morning. or till lunchtime as it did for me. and then just gradually increase the dose as you get used to the tablets side effects but they do wear off after a few weeks.
