Advice & Tips: Try and drink lots of water in the few hours before you take it as it gives you a dry mouth. While it does not make you fall asleep, when you do sleep it puts you in a very deep sleep. It is difficult to wake up in the morning as well. You just keep drifting off! I used to sleep 11pm-7am on weekends. Now I sleep till 9am or even 10am sometimes. That is a good thing though if you wake up at 5am some mornings worrying.
