    I took it after an auto accident It made me extremely sleepy I could only take it at night I don't think it is a narcotic, but it can be addicting

    I take this med--it does help with the Fibro issues--the bottle says to take 1 pill {500 mg} 4 times a day. There is NO way I can take that unless I want to be a total zombie.

    I take it as needed--when the muscle spasms are horrible or when I have a tension headache--even then its generally about a 1/2 pill.

    It does make me sleepy so I am very careful about my dosing.

    The one other side effect--at times makes my bladder too relaxed. :(
