  • My Dr. told me to take it during a time when I had insomnia. I didn't want sleeping pills so he said to try Benadryl or melatonin.

  • I used to give it to my son, just one pill. He's on ADHD meds, and couldn't sleep. He took it till it didn't help, now he takes melatonin. Oh, and we used to give a pill to our dog before road trips.
