I take 400 mg at night, just before bedtime. It knocks me out. It is a mood altering drug, I think, an antipsychotic. I love it. My moods don't swing as hard as they used to. I feel a bit more in control. My headaches and migraines have reduced, I don't know why. But that's a plus for me since I used to have a migraine once or twice a week and a general headache almost every day. So in other words,
"God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change, the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference."
