    I usually get a generic 10 mg by Torrent mnfr. The pharm didn't have but one generic this time by Mylam.. Every night since I wake up at 100am. I thought it might be 5 mg but it is 10. So I will have 3 months of bad sleep before I can be reunited with my one and only Torrent..... Oh well. Could always be worse.

    I have been taking 5mg about three nights a week and, while 5mg helped me sleep in the beginning, it no longer appears to help. When it did work, I experienced minor side effects such as mild disorientation between the time I took the medication and falling asleep but nothing major.

I began taking it and was able to get 6 hours of solid sleep. As time went by, we had to increase the dosage to 10 mg. I found that when I took the drug nightly, many mornings I awoke in a fog and disoriented, very fatigued. It was de ... Show Full Comment

    This medicine did not help my trouble sleeping. This made it worse. I took the pill and lied down within 5 minutes. I started to see and hear hallucinations. Will not take again.
