  • Effectiveness
    Major (for unrefreshing or poor sleep)
  • Side effects
    Severe (weight gain, grogginess)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: It really did help me sleep. Well it helped me fall to sleep, but I always woke up feeling majorly exhausted like I haven't slept all night. It was supposed to help me sleep and it did, but the problem was even after I awoke I still had that "drunk" feeling like I still needed to lay down and sleep. I really didn't like taking it, it became to much of a habit and not to mentioned within just a few months I gained over 50 pounds. That's not good for anyone and I am already "considered" obese, so I had to put a stop to it. It was one of those things that wasn't worth taking. I'd rather go without sleep than take this medication again.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
