    Moderate (for sleep problems)
  • Side effects

  • Adherence

  • Burden

Dosage: 2 tps. Daily
Advice & Tips: To really start with a low dose and stay there for a few days before deciding to up the dose if it doesn't work at that dose. I started on one teaspoon for one day and when nothing happened I went to two rounded teaspoons or a little more the next night. I got regular right away but then three days later I started getting really tired and drowsy in the middle of the day and then all day. Then I got headaches.. finally I thought,, what have I done lately that is new... and figured it was the Calm... so I backed off and am still trying to figure out the best dose. I also intend to talk to my doctor about it.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: overmedicated, headaches, sleepiness
