    Valerian Root - Have You Used It Before?

    I'm about to try Valerian Root pills but before I do I wanted to get your opinions/experiences with it. What did it do for you? Any side effects? Beside the drowsiness

      Yep... I have tried it. Several years ago I had a terrible time getting to sleep (and sleeping) for no apparent reason and I was desperate so I tried Valerian Root.

      It worked the first night and, if I remember correctly, it helped a little bit the next night but after that... nothing. No side effects though so I wouldn't worry about that.

        Melatonin is also recommended to help sleep.

              Thanks! I read that it doesn't work for everyone. I'll try it and see how it goes.

                melatonin worked better for me.

                chamomile promotes sleep as well, but melatonin seems to help get on a sleep/wake scedual. the valarian had little effect, but didnt do any harm.

                  Seems Melatonin is the drug of choice. I have already bought a bottle of Valerian Root, so I'll try it and see what happens.

                    Not sure if or how much you work out. But I took this prior to my injury and just started up taking it again. It really works well for me. http://snac.com/shop/zma-5-the-next-...hancement-new/ Something else to think abot and maybe try

                      I use it occasionally, but found it left me a little depressed when I used it on a nightly basis.

                        I've been using it for past 4 Biggs and I'm sleeping a lot better than usual. I don't feel any other physical or mental changes either. I'll keep you posted.
