If your doc has suggested this dose as a treatment for CH, then 10mg is consistent with the reports in medical literature.If you are using as a sleep aid--then this is a way too large dose. Several months ago, MEDSCAPE.COM, a site for medical professionals, had an interesting report, making these points:a dose of 0.3 mg is best for regular use to aid in sleeping. Larger or smaller doses were less effective.Long term use at this level did not have any side effects.-------Since 1 mg tab is the usual size you find at the drug store, it's a trip to have to cut them into quarters but--I have tried this with excellent results in terms of quality of sleep.I've had feedback from another medical chat group where several middle-age men reported equally good results.
