First night using; fell to sleep within 20 minutes and slept about 7 hours which is great for me; but woke up feeling groggy and felt groggy throughout the day.

I would fall asleep within 20 minutes and be out like a light, with no after-effects the next day. However, after about 3 months of using it regularly, the med stopped working as well. I would lay in bed having very strange, vivid thoughts that ... Show Full Comment
