Aug 20, 2010 (Started Jan 20, 2007)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    Mild
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 10 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I love ambiem but it does have all the crazy side affects people talk about. Night eating that you don't remember. It will make you feel high if you don't fall asleep. Make sure you do not drive or leave your house on this stuff! Really, it can put you into a blackout state where you sleep walk and don't remember it. On the good side; it's the best sleep aid out there. You can fall asleep with-in a half an hour, sleep for a solid 6-8 hours and wake well rested. Also, sometimes I feel alot better (fibromyalgia wise) after taking it.
