Tim; could be your taking the 1/2 at night to close to bedtime, But also most people take this whole dose at one time in the morning or evening so a total of 20mg once daily or to start maybe 10mg once daily to get through the side effects that come with it for the first week or two. then they subside for most people. and as you continue you get less and less side effects until you have been on it from 6 to 8 weeks where you should be up to the full blood level and if it is going to work well for you that should be where you should feel the most benefits. good luck.
