Advice & Tips: Some people cannot tolerate this medication for sleep issues. I do not experience being groggy the morning after, I don't raid the refrigerator at night, drive, etc. I have a couple sleep-walking instances in 12 years of using it. It is the only thing I've tried (prescription, herbal, OTC) that turns off my brain so I can sleep.

Advice & Tips: I RARELY take this. Only if I REALLY need to and I'm having severe sleep trouble where I need one night of good rest, or I have something important the next day where I NEED good uninterrupted sleep. The side effects are you get high off of it and you hallucinate. It's strange and yet another reason why I rarely take it.
