Advice & Tips: This med only worked the first time/night I took it. I started out one tablet 100mg for one week. The first night was good, next day felt slow, brain fog, weak, lazy and hungry. But no sleep. Week two same thing, worked the first night then all the side effects only stronger. The third week was the same thing all over only worse side effects. This med did nothing to help me sleep, but it did make me feel awful.

Advice & Tips: Vivid dreams, thats ok with me. Really making me feel run down during the daytime. No energy, fogy head feeling. It has gotten somewhat better after a week. Problems still with falling asleep. If I do wake up I manage to go back to sleep better. I could up the dose and maybe that would help to get me to sleep. I may try that at end of the week.
