I've only been on 150mg for 2.5 weeks and it makes me terribly tired during the day and especially tired in the evening, and having trouble sleeping at night even with AmbienCR. I have not noticed any improvement yet, but it appears that it can take 4-8 weeks to really start working. To switch and take it in the evening, since I've already taken it this morning, should I take another this evening or wait and take tomorrow's dosage tomorrow evening?
Kat; wait and take it in the evening don't take it both morning and evening or you well be doing double then once you have changed it make sure you continue to take it about the same time each day. hope you are doing better soon. and yes you are right you may start to notice some benefits prior to 6 to 8 weeks but it does take that long to reach the full blood level
