Can chamomile help treat insomnia?

ANSWER

More research is needed. The FDA considers chamomile to be safe and the herb has no known adverse effects. You should not take it, though, if you are sensitive to ragweed or chrysanthemums or other members of the Compositae family such as daisies or sunflowers. You could get contact allergies if you are.
