Advice & Tips: I was told to take this at night to help with fibro and sciatic pain at night. I didn't sleep well, was wakeful, but did help pain. I've started taking it in the morning, and it helps the pain and I don't want to sleep as much during the day now. It has helped with pain and depression. I was given a huge bag of samples to last til next appt. Don't know the cost, but do know my ins won't cover it!
Side effects: difficulty staying asleep, wakefulness
