This is a cheap drug over the counter drug you can buy at Walmart. It is simply called Sleep Aid Tablet by Equate. I found that one 25mg tablet made me drowsy the next morning, so I break one tablet into thirds and it is perfect for me. It is not addicting as I have gotten off of it many times.

I've been taking medication for sleep on & off for 20 years. THEY ALL CAN BE DANGEROUS & ALL ARE ADDICTING!

It helps me sleep through the night. I could fall asleep but not stay asleep. One tablets help me sleep 8 hours, which I need. Doesn't work for me if I drink alcohol, esp a couple glasses of wine on a saturday night! I would recommend you try it.
