    I started to use this because I barely get sleep and I have a baby. So far this has been great for me. I only take one pill a day. I’m up by 3a.m. and go to bed are 8-9 p.m. and up throughout the night. I’m sensitive to caffeine but this has really worked for me to get up and work out and go to work and to spend time with my baby

    Took 4 of them. An hour later I was fast asleep. I thought I would try them since neither coffee or energy drinks work for me. I guess caffeine just isn't my thing.

    Major headache with symptoms like a migraine. I almost had to go to the ER. I had to take meds to put me to sleep (OTC) and was still in pain when I woke up. My pharmacist said she wouldn't recommend it, but I couldn't stay awake during the day, after 2 energy drinks.
