I took 2 25mg tablets as directed. Took over an hour to work. It started making me feel dizzy so I just closed my eyes knowing the medicine was probably working. I was up about 3 times that night and I had bad dreams all night. I've heard of melatonin doing this but I haven't heard zzzquil doing it. Happened 2 nights in a row. I don't think I will be taking this anymore.

Some people have posted bad results, if your wondering why its because some people the take OTC sleep aids have a more severe form of insomnia. These people will have restlessness and feel like they just drank coffee. Talk to your doc BEFORE you buy. You may be a candidate for another type of sleep aid. I didn't have this issue and slept like a baby for 7 hours.
