    This is definitely a knock out pill. I first took Doxylamine a few years ago when I wasn't working and would sleep for hours. Literally hours! That was a whole pill. I now just started taking it again and last night was my second time since before with only half a pill. Even then, that to me who is above average in height and weight is so strong for me.

    I've had the best sleep in years after trying these pills. If I get up to use the bathroom (only once, not like another user reported) I can fall asleep quickly when back in bed. I have just started taking this so I hope the good results will continue.

    I suffer from insomnia caused by another medication I am taking. I I had tried everything to help me fall asleep and stay asleep: Dramamine, Ambien, etc. and nothing worked. Well, this medication is a god send, I can finally get a good 5-6 hours of sleep, I'd obviously prefer. 8 but I'm not complaining! I definitely reccommend this product.
