A few days later I had another thought. Maybe it was a hangover effect from the Ativan I take for sleep? My pdoc had recently increased my dose, from 1.0 mg to 1.5 mgs. When I first started taking it, he warned me that there could be a hangover effect. Maybe Ativan was my problem.
The problem is that 1 mg of Ativan isn't enough to help me sleep. 1.5 mgs might be too much. Maybe 1.25 was the answer -- but pills are 1 mg, with scoring down the middle so they can easily be broken in half. Would it even be possible to break one half of a pill into equal halves?
The answer, I am here to tell you, is yes. I used a pill cutter, but a sufficiently sharp knife would work. 1.25 mgs works just dandy. I can fall asleep, and I'm not lethargic and logy the next day. It's a good thing.
In case you've never seen a pill cutter, here's what one looks like:
