maybe try taking at night right before bed? that's when i take it and it seems to kind of reset my system each night. that plus the LDN doing their magic overnight, ok, that competing with the laying in one position trying to undo the good of those two drugs! smile

anyway, what i've found is that i get incredibly sleepy because my BP drops really low (as low as 80/55) about 45-60 minutes after i take it. then really zonked out for about an hour, hour and a half, and incredibly dry mouth during this time (drinking a whole glass of water when i take the drug and then an hour later when it starts to kick in helps or being asleep when it kicks in). then i feel the muscle relaxant affects for up to about 5 hours total. they say it lasts in the blood stream about 6 hours. so my body seems to perform as the literature describes.

also, i only take 2 mg. if i took more, not sure what would happen: maybe i'd accidently stretch my head right off my neck! LOL! no, rather i'm afraid my BP would drop so low i'd stop living. i'd like to avoid that if at all possible.
