Advice & Tips: Very safe and no side affects. The only reason (I stopped is because I did not need it anymore. I moved to Oregon and got my medical marijuana card and that allowed me to get off two meds...this being one of them. The other was an antidepressant, Citilopram.

Dosage: 50 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I still have problems falling asleep even with taking this but I found it helps if you go to bed immediately after taking it, for me there is a small window for when I start to feel it working and if I'm not already in bed ready to fall asleep it's not effective.

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for sleep problems)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence

  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: Absolutely great for encouraging falling asleep. Also helps with staying asleep. Does leave a little bit of draggy feeling first thing after waking. A low dosage (25-50 mg) worked nicely for me. Any higher dose than this left me groggy for hours. Happy side effect is a more positive feeling during the day. I am only stopping Trazodone because I started Lyrica, which makes me very sleepy. No need to take two meds to do the same thing.
