I didn't put it together but I started having acute anxiety and hyperactivity after taking Zzzquil.. Almost mania. I last took it the night before this one and I still seem to have it in my system.

Comment:
I have taken Zzzquil for about a month, and so far it works great. I fall asleep and stay solidly asleep for about 5-6 hours, with the recommended adult dose.

I took this med at 8:30pm and at 4:00am I was still wide awake!! It actually had the opposite effect on me!! I am also suffering from itchy eyes right now, so I thought it would help with that, also. NOT!! I tossed and turned all night long. Felt like I had been given a stimulant instead!

Comment:
Prior to finding this, I went through many, many sleep aids that were unreliable and inconsistent at best. ZzzQuil Oral is easy and effective.
