  • It helped getting to sleep, but didn't stop me from waking up during the night (19 times according to my fitbit)
    Gender: Woman
    Taken for: Insomnia (short-term treatment)
    Duration taken: Less than a week
  • I split the tablets, usually taking only 2.5 mg. Helps me get to sleep quickly with no side effects.

  • Take it before you brush your teeth at night so that by the time you get to bed ~15 minutes later, you will fall right asleep.

  • Fantastic for falling asleep, not so great at keeping me asleep. Have used for 9+ yrs, trying lunesta now to see if it's better at helping me sleep longer. But so far, it's not even helping me fall asleep on the 2mg dose.

  • Best thing to do is take it as soon as you lie down. Don't get up for anything besides the restroom. For me it made me hungry and I would get up and eat in the middle of the night. Ended up with a lot of extra weight gain.

  • didn't make me sleep all night- but was great for nighttime anxiety. I would wake up in the middle of the night (on the clock), let my dog out to pee, and go back to sleep.
