Advice & Tips: When you take this medication, place the tablet underneath your tongue while you are lying down. It works fast! Be careful, this medication can cause sleep walking... I wake up with bruises all over because I sleep walk and hit doorways or things I didn't see earlier if I need to use the bathroom or whatnot.
Cost: < $25 monthly
