  • Depends on who you are using it for... My daughters pediatrician has her on it and it's amazing! I took it once because I was under so much stress and couldn't sleep, and it helped me get to sleep, but I didn't stay asleep. Of course, as with any medication/herbal supplement, everyone is different.

  • It works for me and my husband. I also love that this is none habit forming. I just take it as needed and can stop whenever I chose to.

  • It's great for falling asleep fast. I think I am asleep before my head hits the pillow.

  • Glad I found this question...my pedi was thinking maybe I should use it for my kids to help them stay asleep in their own beds. I know one poster said she didn't stay asleep, but does it help kids sleep through the night??
