  • I take it 1 to 2 hours before bedtime. It helps me fall asleep, stay asleep, and get back to sleep if I do wake up. I am also more aware of my dreams when I take it.

    Insomnia
  • It used to work fine for me as a sleep aid. Now it gives me restless legs for an hour or two before I can fall asleep.

  • This will make me very drowsy so I only take it when I have no plans to go outside or drive.

  • Used it one day and woke up with a swollen face followed by itching when I was sweating after the swelling went down. I can not touch or have salt without itching all over.

  • Not everyone experiences drowsiness with a dosage of 25 mg (one pill). 50 mg will likely have most people heading for a pillow after 30 minutes. For a very few, it will have the opposite effect causing them to experience anxiety.

    Seasonal allergies
  • As a "before bed" sleep aid, I noticed fewer issues with the day-after hang-over feeling than with Trazadone. It seems to help a little with breathing with my CPAP as well.
