Sleep quality: Ideally, you would not depend on ANYTHING at all for sleep... those meds may temporarily seem to help, but in actual fact, they 'mess' with the sleep cycle. So I personally try never to take them... This may explain why you're actually doing better on less medication. The body knows what it needs to do - and better not to interfere artificially if you can help it. There's lots more on this topic
