hi ed,I was always under the impression this med was used for moderate pain. and like most pain meds should be taken in the morning after eating. i am not a doctor. i suggest you check with your doctor and tell him/her what's going on with you. may i suggest that if doctor trys giving you something for sleep, ask if this med is better taking in the morning. one more thing,this medication is habit forming regardless of what anyone tells you. that I know from experience.again I am not a doctor.good luck and may god bless you.
