"This one is kind of a hit or miss with me. On most days it does seem to work at night but other times, I will get a "hot flush" to my face and neck that comes on about 15 minutes after I take it and will last about 1/2 an hour. Because of that, I limit the use of this to high stress nights when I just need the extra calm to sleep."
"I am an anxious sleeper and was looking forward to taking this along with my melatonin. After only a few days of taking it I've found that first, it knocks me OUT, which is the good part. But the next day I feel completely lousy! I'm lethargic, groggy, and kind of depressed. I've ordered a powdered version so I can cut the dose, but we'll see. Looking into 5-htp next."
"It is really hard to say what it helping me sleep better since I have changed quite a few things. I take this closer to bedtime and then a Melatonin at bedtime and have been sleeping better. BUT the problem may have also be sated by taking Vitacost Herbal Hormone Complex† -- 920 mg per serving - 180 Capsules or it could be all of the above. I have also taken this in the late afternoon on a rather stressful day and it definitely took the edge off the business in my head. I guess I would say- what can it hurt to try?"
