  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take

Advice & Tips: I just started taking this medication on 5/15/09. I am not sure how well it is working because I still wake up during the night and still don't feel rested. It has helped a little but I wish it helped more. I will ask the doctor when I go back but that is not for a couple of months so I will keep taking it and see if it improves. I have noticed that if I am woken up (by say my kids) I am very groggy and can't mentally focus on what is going on or being said and then I usually don't remember it in the morning unless it is brought up to me by someone else.
Side effects: slow to wake in morning, waking up during the night, hangover effect
