"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."

"I never know if some of the supplements work. But I can tell the difference with Gaba. I was taking 5HTP but Gaba works better. The price is great."

"I heard about this in passing and thought I would try it. I have already told all my friends and family about this product.
There is no question this stuff works. I take it on the week ends to deal with stresses from family! This is amazing. I feel more calm and yet am able to maintain my thinking capacity.
Highly recommend."

"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?"
