    If you have high blood pressure or hypertension DO NOT TAKE THIS MEDICATION. Also don't drive or work after taking the pills. It will KNOCK you out cold for four hours. Take it only at night or if you need a nap. I notice I drool more in my sleep when I take it. This medication is addictive, but it helps you sleep at night. Just don't take it if you have hypertension or HPB.

    Both hips and low back pain kept me from finding a position to sleep in. Also, when I would get out of bed in the morning I could hardly walk until I was up on my feet an hour or so. I took the medication for a week with success but noted I had dizziness when I turned in bed and getting up. Therefore, I stopped taking the medication and that solved the dizzines. I seemed to be sleeping quit ... Show Full Comment

    I have been suffering sleepless nights for around 4 years with back and hip pain. I could never lay down for very long. This drug helped me right away and I finally got atleast 5-6 hours of sleep. It seems to wear off after around 6 hours, tho. I have not experienced dizziness or any other side effect yet but have only been taking for two weeks. I am just glad I can get some sleep.

    Treatment for lower back sprain. Relieve spasms a little. Took it before bedtime. I kept waking up 2 hours after falling asleep. After 3 days, experienced blurred vision. Doctor pulled me off medicine. Still have blurred vision in left eye after 24 hours.
