I just started 2 weeks ago and tonight I did not fall asleep after my first dose. In fact, I am wide awake 2 hours after taking it. Always before after 5-10 minutes I was out. Haven't had any food, no stimulants - I have no idea why it didn't work. Any ideas? I am on 2.25 mg twice a night.
Some of these comments form users of Xyrem may help.
You may not be at your optimal dose yet (I am and it still takes that long to kick in for me but it's worth it for real sleep) plus are you avoiding food and milk 2 hours prior to taking it?
