  • My migraines have reduced in frequency and duration so much that it feels like a miracle. My doctor titrated me up to 25mcg and I take it every night before I go to bed. Love it! It has given me my life back!

    Duration taken: A year or so
  • I'm using this to treat depression, and insomnia which was caused by my primary medication. I take half of a 5mg tablet before bed and it knocks me out. Anymore and I'm very tired the next day. It has worked perfectly for my needs.

  • Works well for panic attacks and migraines, but comes with a lot of side effects. Dry mouth and drowsiness were most noticeable.

  • I knew it was working already in the second week as my mood lifted after days of darkness - but it was the side effects of a dry mouth, being able to fall asleep faster and for longer and also I got sunburnt from lower tolerance to sunlight

  • 10mg per day for sciatica. Less pain but tortured by thirst (up to 20 liters water a day) & drowsy. Blurred vision, severe headaches, balance problems, clients thought I was drunk. Withdrawal: insomnia, nightmares, depression.

  • Definitely take at night and see how much you really need. 25 mg knocked me on my butt the next day but 12.5 mg was just enough to help me sleep and get through the day.
