    I take Advil PM almost every night. No side effects except when I wait too late in evening to take two, and I don't get at least 7 hours sleep, I feel groggy in morning.

    Works for me. I have chronic pain and take Xanax to sleep. I think this could replace my Xanax. 2 pills I sleep but if I don't sleep enough then feel dizzy.
