Funny you should ask. Visited my neuro last week and he put me on that stuff - 25 mg at bedtime. My bedtime is really getting to be early lately if I want to go to work the NEXT day. In fact I've been taking it right after I get home from work in the afternoon. And am still having trouble getting up in the morning.
I'm thinking of calling the doc back next week and seeing if he can reduce the dosage. Don't think I can handle this dosage. Looks like everyone else is having the same problem. I'm taking it because the numb side of my face (from the surgery) is burning and this is supposed to stop the buring.
But I guess on the positive side - if I can wake up - I won't be depressed!
