Advice & Tips: In the beginning this med made me very tired as I was having to take it 3 times daily morn, Noon, and night. Later we discovered actually I did by testing on my own how long I could stretch the doses for convenience. I stretched them from morn to late afternoon and then again to bedtime. Now I take them only in the morning and evening. I am less tired and more alert it helps me sleep better at night. I have gotten used to the AM dose and it does not bother me any more. I added a cup of coffee or coke to my AM routine and helps out a great deal.
Cost: $200+ monthly
