It Works For Me
I take Valerian Root for insomnia. I took prescription drugs for depression and insomnia for almost 20 yrs. Paxil and Trasidone. Both are prescribed for depression but the trasidone was specifically given for its sleep properties. Well I decided to stop these drugs almost 2 yrs ago. I weaned myself off and quickly found insomnia to be an ongoing problem so I started taking the Valerian Root. I had taken it for nervousness and anxiety in the past but only once in a great while. At any rate it worked and continues to work for my insomnia for the most part. I do still wake briefly in the early morning hours - but tend to go back to sleep pretty quickly. I have not noticed any side affects at all.
