I started out on 15 mg and was increased to 30 mg 2 months ago and now the 3o mg is no longer affective. Should I ask my MD to increase the dose or is it unusual to prescribe higher than 30 mg at bedtime?
30 mg is about the maximum dose. On occasion, I have seen where a Dr will allow a dose then a second dose in an hour if the person has not fallen asleep. this medication is notorious for tolerance though. Even if you increase the dose, you will eventually beconme tolerant. You might talk to the Dr about other options. Have you tried Lunesta or Ambien?
