Since you have been taking it for a few days, sleepness now probably is not a permant thing. As the doctor starts to increase dosage you will feel so much better. Give it a chance. I have been on it at least ten years and it is the best thing I have ever done for myself.
One thing what is goo for me might not be the best thing for you... just give it time.

I started on it approximately 3 months ago and I had the same problem. I tried taking it at nite and I had a terrible hangover. Then I tried taking it in the afternoon when I was at my busy part of the day, and either I had been on it long enough for the side effects to wear off or that was the time to take it. But it doesn't make me sleepy anymore
