What dose or size of tablet have you been given and how often do you take it.? I take it only occasionally because it knocks me out.

Thanks

My wife takes this for nerve pain in her back. The dose required is very individual in its affect. My wife started at 10mg but slowly went up to 25mg. I know a number of people taking it and most are positive about the help it can give.

I was given it for anxiety, it is good, definitely helps with the sleep x

I took these at minimum dose of 10mg nightly for nerve damage following surgery for fractured wrist. Only side effect is I slept for 9 to 10 hrs each night, but read if taken very early evening it can alleviate this. I also tried halfing the tablets then stopped them completely when felt better.
