I was prescribed this medication for sleep by my Neurologist. It has worked wonderfully for me. I was prescribed a very high dose due to 12 back surguries and pain waking me up in the middle of the night. I take 150 mg. along with nerve medication and I have had no problems at all. I would highly reccomend this drug to anyone for sleep disorders.

I can't believe it worked because I was very skeptical ... Show Full Comment
