Valerian

Has anyone used it before to help them sleep?
I sometimes have trouble getting to sleep I can be awake for about 5 hours before falling asleep argh! I've tried Kalms and some own brand versions and they never seem to do the job. And I'd rather try something that's natural.

    I've used valerian, well valerian root and it works on me. Although kinda makes me sleepy during the day too.

    In the morning lol...probably not when your meant to take it. I think if you took it before you went to bed, or hr or two beforehand it'd be ok. I took it to relax lol.

    That could be why :lol: I'd probably take it an hour before bed.

    - the bottle of wine seemed to do the trick though :razz: just so we know, no one recommends exceeding the max dose on any sort of tablet
