Hello mograce. I'm not certain if you're taking it as an anti-depressant, or as a sleep aid. I took it soley for sleeping and of course took it before my bed time.To answer your question, yes. After waking up, I was more often than not tired. and thats after having slept. This feeling of tiredness took several months to leave me. I was on the drug for almost two years, and ended up having to stop taking it because I had built up an immunity to it. Fatique, lethargic, aside it was a fairly good drug, in my case to be on. Best to you,
