    Gives me horrible panic attacks that I have only ever experienced after taking valerian in any form. I would never take this again after the horrible nightmares it has put me through.

    Assists with getting to sleep but still waking during night though not getting up now. Real bad flatulence, not sure if related or coincidence.

    Comment:
    Initially helped to sleep, but after long term use actually found that my level of anger increased dramatically. Stopped taking Valerian and shortly thereafter back to normal. Tried the samme thing again thinking it may be a fluke and the anger returned. Seems that short term use, at least for me, is fine. Long term use is no longer a consideration for me.

    Comment:
    I have been taking valerian for several years. I take 1-2 day "holidays" from it per week. After taking it for several weeks I stopped taking it, thinking it was not really doing much. I then realized the quality of my sleep had much improved while I was taking it. I also take melatonin, calcium, and niacin w/ inositol at nite to help with my insomnia.
