Advice & Tips: This definitely helps with the problems I have sleeping, getting to sleep, staying asleep, getting restorative sleep, depression, and pain. I can tell more when I miss 2 or more nights, usually caused by a refill problem. I try to never run out and have to go without a dose. Missing doses causes all my problems like with sleeping, pain, and depression to become worse and my other medications don't seem as effective. I really take a nose dive if more than 2 doses are missed. Missing only 1 is tolerable, missing anymore becomes a big problem. I get anxious, teary, sleepless, and I feel hopeless. It is a horrible feeling.
