Advice & Tips: I really can't give much because this medication has never really worked for me. Why my doctor put me on it AFTER I told her it wouldn't work I do not know. I find that the only thing this medication does is it puts me to sleep even though it says "non-drowsy" on it. It may work better for others, but it does not for me. My daughter takes it and it works wonders for her with very little side effects, in fact it doesn't even put her to sleep. So I really think this type of medication is one of those ones where you have to try it to see if it works or doesn't work.
