I was anxious to try this as I struggle to fall a sleep and stay a sleep. I was very disappointed. After taking these 2 capsules the bed started spinning as if I were drunk. I was awake all night worse than normal. It has been 2 days and I still have the spins when I lay down and I walk like I just got off a roller coaster. My balance is off and I feel sluggish and weak. I am going to give myself ... Show Full Comment

Younger teen here. I had trouble sleeping for a while and used this for occasional sleepless nights. I stopped using it after I got my sleep schedule back on track but 6 months later I started using it again. First time I used it again, my jaw felt numb, I would see tall dark shadows looming over my bed, it looked like the walls were turning and my vision was blurry. I was able to go to sleep thou ...

The results I get with this are really varied. The first time I drunk a whole cap and I slept for 12 hours and woke up groggy.

I have missed half the day because of this medicine. It doesn't give you uninterru ... Show Full Comment

Takes a while to kick in, but if you let it work while in bed then it does the job. Slept straight through the night with slight drowsiness the next day, but nothing major. If you are wondering why it stops working after weeks it's because you are taking it wrong. Says directly on the package the directions of use. Naturally you will build up a tolerance. I've taken this roughly 1-2 times ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
If I get more than 7-8 hours of sleep on any given night, I won't fall asleep until 3-4am the following night. The problem is, I need 8 hours of sleep to be fully alert and functional. If I take one-half to a full dosage and I am out like a light; vivid dreams and all. I've taken it for several weeks at a time and the effect does seem to wear off but if you think that's a problem with ... Show Full Comment
