    I started needing a sleep aid after being put on prednisone. I used benadryl-based sleep aids for awhile, but I started having weird side effects, so I switched to this one.

    I travel a lot to to different time zones around the World and started using this instead of Xanax (which requires a prescription in the USA). It does seem to help me fall asleep quicker. I also take Melatonin which seems to help as well. Only side effect is that I feel sluggish the next day for several hours.

    Was unable to fall asleep. With one 25mg dose, sleep comes readily.
