I agree that dividing the dose is best. I was on it for several years (10-20 mg/day) along with nefazodone, which was a great combination while it lasted, and that was how it worked best for me. I believe it has a complex metabolic pattern with several stages, so spreading the dose out avoids some rollercoaster effects, mild though this particular med is (for most people).

I found that there was about an hour or so after a took a dose when I felt dopey, and only after that the real anxiety/stress reduction and anti-depressant effect kicked in and I felt "normal" (i.e. better than without it!) for about 4-6 hours. Dividing the dose helped to reduce the dopey period as well as make the good effect last longer.
