I've learned to take it REALLY early in the morning so I can go back to sleep and have enough before I get up for the day.

Myale, I was on phenobarbital for about 23 years. I changed Neurologist and the new one took me off of it right away because he said that it causes serious damage to the liver. I would get a second opinion about its continued use.
