    They should take it off the market or they are a class action suit waiting to happen. This drug almost cost me my life. I highly suggest throw it in the TRASH!

    It does help me go to sleep about 30 minutes after taking it. Do not like the super sweet taste which lingers even after brushing teeth. Who wants that right before going to bed.

    I started using this due to some trouble sleeping in relation to my anxiety troubles and thus far have been quite pleased with the ability to put me to sleep, I've talked to my doctor with my continue usage of the product and she says its all good so I'm quite happy with the product, hopefully I wont have to continue using it though.

This stuff was DISASTER for me. I would take it and fall asleep, but wake up after about three hours and NEVER get back to sleep. Meanwhile, I would feel like the Battle of Gettysburg was going on in my s ... Show Full Comment
