I have been using it for few years and it still works. I had some eye pain with the regular but not with the CR. Too bad it is so expensive. So I alternate with stress meds that give me shorter sleep till CR version becomes generic.

First night using; fell to sleep within 20 minutes and slept about 7 hours which is great for me; but woke up feeling groggy and felt groggy throughout the day.
