Gets me to sleep just fine, but doesnt last too long. I still wake up in early morning hrs. I dont feel groggy, so the benefit is far greater than the side effects. I've used Benadryl, Tylenol PM, Unisom and this works the best with the least amount of side effects. Plus I have allergies at night so I'm killing 2 birds with 1 stone. I'd recommend it.

I take it every night and it works every time, except those where I ate a lot within an hour of going to bed. The dose is 2 tablets (50 mg), but I haven't noticed bad side effects with three. I am currently seeking it in lower-cost form.
