Yes, I only take it at night. I have taken a small piece of it before a flight or dental appt.I dont feel like a zombie if i take very small amts.plus, if you take it daily,the sedative affects go away for most people.It's surprising that such a small dose can reroute things in my brain and help me feel less self conscious.This may not be your experience tho.It can also be very difficult for some to taper off,if needed. I know Ive felt like im being jackhammered into the ground when Ive tried to stop. I no longer want to go off tho because its the thing that helps w/the least side effects,as in none! However, I do worry about the day when I will have to taper,hope that day never comes.
