    Mild (vivid nightmares)

    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take

Advice & Tips: I started taking this to help with sleep and possibly with my dry skin (allergies). I don't think it helped with skin. And it seemed to me that my nightmares / hypnopomia were worse with the diphenhydramine. So I stopped it. Not a big deal either way.
