    My Rheumy put me on this drug a short time ago for neuropathy in my legs.

    The first few days I was on it I felt really spacy.

    Dosen't do it now and has helped my legs a bit. At least I'm not clawing the hide off my shins. Toes are another thing.

    If the sleepy thing last too long, tell your doctor.

    Good luck

    I took it for quite awhile. I had a really hard time in the morning because of sleepiness. I also developed a tremor in my hands. I have changed doctors and the new one took me off of it. He told me if it was making me feel that way it way not worth it.
    I do wake up faster not taking it. Hope this helps. Suzanne
