Hi GG. It used to work in about 20-30 minutes, but now it seems to take forever. I can lie in bed for hours after taking it.
> Also, what dose are you taking?
I've been trying to wean off completely from 15 mgs over the past 6 months or so. Lately I've been averaging 5 a night, but I've gotten as low as 2.5 for several nights in a row. It's not that I sleep well on so low a dose, but that I don't seem to sleep much better when I do increase the dose--which always used to work.
