Definitely not worth the minimal benefits. I have taken it twice a day for 2 days. I can't remember ever sleeping as poorly as I have the last two nights. I was awake at least every hour.

Comment:
I had a deep chest cough and a runny nose and I was losing my voice. The first dose I took brought about relief. I could breath. My side effects were sleeplessness at night, cramps in my feet, thirsty and not hungry. I'm on my 5th pill was going to try and get along without it but my nose began to clog up again. When I took this 5th pill I received immediate relief.
