Advice & Tips: You take it at bedtime and it gives me a headache during the first week, so take something before bed. Tylenol or something for headaches. But you cannot take Advil. Read the instructions carefully. I did dream but didn't have nightmares. Try and get plenty of sleep. The first day after taking it I felt yukky, but after that I didn't feel any side effects. But I did get the headache every night if I didn't take something before bed. However, it is worth it if it slows the progression of my memory loss!!!
Cost: < $25 monthly
