    I don't fall asleep easily and sometimes wake up after 3 or 4 hours so I tried this sleep-aid from a warehouse store. Half a pill works fine for me. My only worry is if it is habit forming. I'm afraid to stop since I'm getting 7-8 hours of good sleep with one-half of a pill.

    I have trouble falling/staying asleep due to work related stress issues. I've been using this med for over 3 years. When I use it, I generally sleep soundly for 8 hours and wake up refreshed. The problem I have with it is that I can't use it for more than 2 - 3 consecutive nights. When I do I have bizarre dreams and, occasionally, night terrors. I only use it very occasionally now.

I couldnt fall asleep, and when I did i would wake up every 2 hours or so. I started taking 1 pill a night at the same time every night for the last year and I get a solid 8 hours every night. The only drawback is Im extremely drowsy in the morning and ... Show Full Comment
