    Moderate (for sleep problems)
  • Side effects
    Moderate (clumsiness)
  • Adherence
    Sometimes
  • Burden
    Very hard to take
Dosage: 2 dose Weekly
Advice & Tips: I hate drinking. Period. But a shot or two before sleep helps give me that that feeling in the morning of a good night's rest, something I rarely get to feel. Unexpected benefits? Just more talkative before sleep. I wish there was a much easier way to take it though.
