The 1st time I was prescribed it I took 10mg, this made me feell relaxed but I couldn't switch my mind off and I was awake all night, I was then advised to increase this to 20mg and this did work, I slept really well and felt great but this only lasted for approx 2 weeks and then I found my body relaxed but my mind was awake and it kept me awake all night. I went back to the dr and he told me to take 25mg which again worked, I was sleeping really well and felt great but again this only lasted for 2 weeks, so last night I increased the dose as the dr said if 25mg didn't work then I could take an extra 10mg and increase it to 35mg, which I did and I didn't get any sleep at all. I went back to the dr yesterday and he's told me to take 50mg,which again did not work, does your body adjust to the medication? Will I have to increase it every 2 weeks to get a decent nights sleep?Will this keep me awake again when the dose is not high enough? I am at my witts end with not sleeping as all I want to do is go to bed at night and to sleep well. I don't know if I should just stop taking it as I never used to be so dependant on tablets to get me to sleep. Any advice is appreciated - Nikki
