      I see! I guess different people react differently. So you stopped, are you taking something else. I originally signed up with this forum because I wanted to stop yawning the medication, now that feel better. I was told that I have stop the same way I started, slowly. If you stopped and how you felt after.. Please share your experience with me.

      Thanks,

    Hi Again Richard,

    I felt just like you when I first started on this med. I have twin five year old and I was scared that I would be dead sleep and not able to know if they woke up in the middle of the night.

    I did a handful of research and this is probably the safest, to me at least, others might have different opinions, the only side affects I experienced was dry mouth, and yes really dry mouth. So if that happened to you have plenty of water. I didn't see any other changes in me, but people are different so try some research and when you feel really comfortable than use my method and start really slow to get use to it.
