I have also gained weight, vivid dreams, and sleeping a lot. I've been taking it in the morning as I forget at night but am thinking I need to switch. I just saw somewhere that my hoarseness might be caused by it.
Yes it can cause hoarsness due to it drying out your throat as well it drys out your mouth etc..
Also it can make you sleepy during the day. It should be taken before bed.
You can try a mouthwash that's good for dry mouth and throat, its called biotene.
I wish you well,
