I work overnights and have issues sleeping days and the nights I’m off, I’m not sleeping much as my schedule is messed up! Is it OK to sometimes take another 30 mg dose if needed. Will it hurt me is my main concern? Anyone else use 60mg sometimes? Any advice or experiences appreciated. I’m kinda scared to take 60mg (silly I know).
Thanks in advance for any advice

Also I have been on this drug for years on and off. Ususally it works well but some nights (days If i work the previous nights) 30 mgs don’t cut it. Doc says 30mgs should be sufficient of course but sometimes it just isn’t. Thoughts?? Thanks
I have the same problem with sleep and my schedule.The Dr started me on 15mg but said I could go up to 30mg if needed. Neither dose works for me. If anything it makes me more awake or I fall asleep for about 45 min then wake up. I wouldn't go up to 60mg unless I cleared it with the Dr first. You never know how you might react. I've taken an additional 15mg about 2 hrs after the 30mg and sometimes I can sleep. I m not a fan of this med because it really doesn't help me sleep. I m looking into holistic remedies.
