It tastes bad but it works. Seriously, have a big glass of juice or something when you take it if its not a coated tablet, I find even with water I can still taste it, it's bad and it lingers. It's been effective for sleep though, I've been on and off the generic form for a few years, it does what it's suppose to. I would not advise taking it if you've been drinking alcohol tho ...

Comment:
Have taken on and off for insomnia over the last 5 years. As with most hypnotics it loses most of its effectiveness with daily use over a few weeks. Now I only use a couple of days a week and its works well 90% of the time. Minor side effects are a metallic taste and amnesia. DO NOT mix with alcohol unless you want to make a total
