I went up to 9 mg and then 12 mg for about 12 hours-- taking it off a few hours before bed.

That wasn't quite enough emsam, so my pdoc thought 18 mg/12h -- two 9mg/12h or 12mg +6 mg/12h---making sure to take it off, of course--would be safe.

So that's what I'm doing. Yesterday was my first day.

I also happened to take a 100 mg capsule of neurontin last night for the first time for shoulder pain. I slept a lot better.

Defintely taking it off at night helped-- but I needed more time off, which is why I switched to the 18mg/12hr. I'd guess the neurontin might have played a role in my sleeping better, too, though.

Only a guess, because of both at the same time--but I slept better than times when I tried 12mg/12h -(- that dosage wasn't enough).

I was getting 6 1/2 or 7 hours--but I need at least 8 hrs.. So you might be able to work with keeping it on longer than 12 hours.
