  • Perceived effectiveness for Insomnia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Sometimes
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: Take with a LOT of water. The capsules always feel like they're caught in my throat. Also, hold your breath, valerian is not a nice smelling herb. I notice when I take it, I'm less likely to wake up randomly throughout the night so that's a good thing.

Advice & Tips: I add this sometimes at night when I'm freaking out and my other sedating meds aren't helping. I wouldn't recommend mixing it with all the shit I'm mixing it with. I don't think it will kill me, but it might not be the greatest idea. I think it helps sedate me more and calm me enough to sleep and feel somewhat normal
