Tripelene and sleep

CD, I am so tired today! I just want to sleep, even though I went to bed at 20h30 last night and only woke up around 05h30! I took 2 Tripelenes yesterday (25mg each) around 19h00. Is the dosage maybe to strong for me? My eyes are red and I am sleepy.

Hi Karen
Yes it is too much - remember that Trepilene works for 12 hours. 25 mg at about 18h00 would work better. You can even half this dose too if you feel too tired the next morning.

thank you BMC. My mom always takes 2, she gave it to me because sometimes I struggle to sleep. I think in future I'll only take 1. It is past mid-day, and I still feel sleepy.

Hi Karen,

shoo that is strong did ur doc tell u to take 2 at a time, have u tried taking only one?
I once took 20mg & I was out for a count & very very sleepy the next day. It might be that u still need to get used to it but I still think that dosage is v high.
