    I tried taking one pill a few weeks ago and it didn't work. Last night I went to bed at 1AM. At 2AM I got up and took 2 blue Advil PM caplets with a glass of water. I slept soundly until 10AM.

    I cannot believe how well these work. It takes a couple hours to kick in and I do wake up several times a night but..with advil pm i fall back asleep which is my main problem. I don't like to them every night so I take two for a couple nights and then take a night off, then one tablet for a couple nights.
