It's not really a big deal with non-MAOI ADs, no.

Okay...I wouldn't base your conclusions as to how well it will work on how well it's working at 15 mg. (The minimum effective dose is usually 30, although I think that some effects become noticeable at 20.)

> Thanks for this input on sleeping meds, elizabeth. I really wanted your take on this. Actually, my hunch is if I keep taking 600-800 Neurontin at bed and use Ambien to sleep, I'll make it through the night.

Go with your hunch. (Works for me. < g >)

> I've read that long term use shouldn't be a problem with these (at least in terms of withdrawal or addiction).

Yes, that's true.

I don't know about Neurontin; I never had that problem with Ambien.
