Since you only have to take it when you awaken in the middle of the night, does it truly require less pills per month? Anyone have any bad side effects? How many people have been prescribed since it's release? I can't imagine there have been that many to know all of the issues, if any.
They do know it's habit forming, that it carries some pretty bad allergic reactions and that memory lapse has been reported (people have driven and do not remember driving). When something new comes out I personally like to wait at least a year prior to forming an opinion. As I said, thus-far I've heard more about the warnings and consequences than I have about the benefits.
Hope this helps.
