    Love this med. I am going to cardiologist today so I want to tell him about it & ask his opinion. Use a scissors, split the 2 caps in the middle of plastic & they will come out much easier.

    I have no problems falling asleep, as soon as 4 a.m. rolls along I wake up like it's my job. I took 2 gels as directed and popped in a couple of ear plugs and slept like a baby. I woke up to use the bathroom about 3 and was able to go right back to sleep. No weirder dreams than usual and I woke up feeling great.

    Took this pill. Within 20 minutes I felt dizzy and started getting a head ache. I did fall asleep but woke up 3 hours later wide awake with blurry vision in one eye and stomach ache with diherea. I've now been up since 4 am feeling like garbage with diherea throughout the day and a really upset stomach.

    Works good once you get it out of the packaging. If you buy the capsules make sure you have a pick axe to try and get them out. If you want to kill an hour of time and maybe fall asleep without taking this drug, try opening it without a sharp object. Maybe zzzquil can lighten up on the packaging or at least include a bottle opener in box.
