  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
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.
