I have a bottle of this but I haven't used it. I get insomnia when I'm anticipating something social I must do the next day such as start a new job. I'm not able to test it because I'm not experiencing insomnia right now. I'm just wondering if it's something I can rely on the next time it happens or if xanax isn't very good for that. I need something very strong. When I've used OTC sleeping pills I've stayed awake all night. The same thing happened with herbal remedies.
