I have the common problem of... my mind won't turn off. I finally get out of bed and hit the sofa with the tv on. Works sometimes and I get to sleep by 4 or 5am for a few hours.
Hi, this is a good starting dose when used to aid sleep. I have been taking this medication to help me sleep for several years now and i find it very effective. I certainly sleep much better than i did before. The highest dose i was prescribed for sleep, was 50mg per night. There is room for adjustment in both directions though
