this product worked really well. I needed to get to sleep to wake up for an 8 am class..and thats almost impossible in a college dorm. I couldnt fall asleep for like 2 hours and it was already 1:30. I had previously bought these thinking i might use them sometime if needed and so i took one. I felt drowsy really soon and fell asleep definately within 25-30 minutes. I woke up before my alarm even went off and didnt feel sleepy the entire day. It worked great!

I haven't slept through the night since I entered puberty, so I have quite an arsenal of sleep aid products in my medicine cabinet, including the Benadryl-based ones and plain, old Melatonin. I try not to take any of them every single night, because I know that if I do they'll lose effectiveness. In addition, melatonin over time will supplant the body's natural ability to produce serotonin, so it should definitely not be taken every single night. Benadryl products should also not be taken every night, because they are an antihistamine and vasoconstrictor, and, well, you just shouldn't do that to your body constantly!

Midnite contains melatonin, which is the real active ingredient. It also contains Chamomile, which helps normal people sleep, but I am not normal, so Chamomile does nothing for me except maybe smell nice in its natural state. Midnite also contains Lavender, the fragrance of which is emotionally calming and which I also use to help me sleep, but I had never heard before that it's also supposed to be soporific when ingested - I suspect it isn't really, but what the heck, it's harmless and frequently used in candy and pastries as food flavoring.

What I like about it is that it is 1) chewable, so I can keep it beside the bed, which is great (it also tastes pretty good,) and also that it is 2) low enough in dosage that I can take it later in the night when I wake up and not have to worry that I won't be able to get up and function by the time morning rolls around. The other products I use must be taken early enough that they'll wear off by the time the alarm goes off, or I'll be a complete zombie.

The things I don't like about it are: 1) the tablets crumble when I push them through the foil backing on the package, so it's really best to open the little bubbles with nail scissors (not exactly convenient for bedside use!) and 2) I really do still wake up feeling groggy after taking it, and not especially "refreshed" because the sad truth is, there is NO SUCH THING as artificially induced sleep that is as good as real, natural sleep. And there never will be, no matter what medical science keeps trying to promise us.

I had taken MidNite for years, only on an occasional basis, always getting a good, long and deep night's sleep. About a month ago, I started taking the herbal supplement regularly on a nightly basis. Again, I was getting wonderful, beneficial sleep. I was even able to cut the dosage of my usual prescribed sleep aid medication by half.

However, after about a week of continued use, I started to have swelling of my left foot and ankle. I had flown back east and attributed this to the heat, humidity and flying. Once I returned home, the swelling continued to the point where the condition would not go away, became very uncomfortable, for in addition to the swelling, my foot and ankle were very hot. I used ice packs and elevated my leg, but the relief was only very brief, with the edema returning.

Then 5 days ago, my right foot and leg, as well as my hands and arms began to show signs of swelling. At that point, I tried to look back at the previous month and determine if I had done anything different from before that time. At that point it occurred to me that nightly intake of Midnite might be the culprit. In researching online some of the symptoms of the ingredients, I saw that a possible side effect of melatonin was impaired blood flow. At that point, I quit taking the supplements. Now, four days later, my arms, hands, right let and ankle have returned to normal. The swelling in my left foot and ankle has greatly subsided, but at the rate it is going, I anticipate several more days for my left left and foot to be back to normal.

In doing the online research, I also learned that melatonin can interfere with prescription drugs. I take a diuretic for high blood pressure. Perhaps the melatonin was canceling the benefit of my diuretic and causing restricted blood flow; hence, the edema.

I would recommend that anyyone taking MidNite do their own research or talk to their physician regarding any possible drug interactions with MidNite.

I've tried almost every OTC sleep aid out there and MidNite is my favorite:

1.) It uses all natural ingredients like melatonin. Your body naturally produces melatonin as you get tired and is what causes you to start feeling sleepy. The melatonin in MidNite naturally reproduces this affect.

2.) It only stays in your body around 2-3 hours. So if you need help *staying* asleep it may not be the right sleep aid for you. But I don't have trouble staying asleep so this is perfect because I can take it if I wake up at 3am and not worry about it causing me to be tired/groggy at 9am.

3.) Another benefit of it only being in your body for 2-3 hours is if you need help taking a quick afternoon nap. I can take a midnight and sleep for 2 hours and wake up feeling energized.

4.) I never feel any side effects the morning after. Again your body naturally uses melatonin to make you sleepy so MidNite is not doing anything to your body that doesn't already happen naturally. it just gives you more control over *when* it happens.

5.) It's a small dose and sometimes I need to take two pills. But I like having the option of only taking one if that's all I need. My girlfriend on the other hand usually has to take two. Keep this in mind when trying the product, you may need a higher dose.

I've noticed most of the 1-star reviews are complaining about ordering the two pack but only getting a 1 pack. First of all the reviews are for the product not the seller. (Amazon has a separate review system for sellers). Secondly I always order it shipped by Amazon and I've never had a problem. I actually do the subscribe and save and I get a two pack every month for me and my girlfriend.

I also notice some complaints of "side affects". While I'm sure it's possible to have side affects I've never experienced anything and since melatonin is part of a natural sleep cycle you would likely experience the same side affects if your body was naturally producing the melatonin you needed for sleep. So it seems unlikely to me that they would be caused by MidNite/melatonin.

I've been having problems sleeping since going through menopause. I've had good luck using Tryptophan to sleep but sometimes have to also take Benadryl and Nyquil, which knock me out but leave me feeling groggy and hungover from it the next morning. Plus Tryptophan is pretty expensive. I'm a big believer in using natural supplements where possible rather than synthetic drugs so when a co-worker gave me a coupon for MidNite, I didn't hesitate to try it. I took one over the weekend in case it made me groggy so I wouldn't have to worry about side effects trying to get to work. It did help me sleep but I found it very hard to get going again the next morning. I felt "stoned" til noon at least. I am sensitive to substances, so last night I tried just taking a half a tablet, and it worked perfectly with no morning grogginess. Got to sleep and slept through the night and woke up feeling great, very relaxed and mellow. I also really like that I can take it w/o water, because the less water I drink at bedtime the longer I can sleep without waking up to go to the bathroom.

This product does just as claimed, and I recommend it highly. It encourages me to fall asleep promptly, and even if taken at 3AM, I can function in the morning without drowsiness. The chewable formulation is a fantastic idea. Dependable, natural rest is a great comfort.

I have been sleeping aid therapy for over 5 years, from benadryl to ambien to tylenol PM, almost every single nite.

It's like putting an elephant down to sleep!~ Anyway, the first time I tried it I got really drowsy but haad to follow with a tylenol pm

the next time I tried, I immediately realized I needed TWO of these, I cut the caffeine by 5 pm, took a very hot bath and read before sleeping

I did sleep straight thru for over 9 hours. This is absolutely unheard of for me. Without serious medical help. Last nite was nite 5 and I am sleeping much better than I have had before. I have gotten used to that foggy sleeping pill daytime effect, I do NOT have that now and I am going all day long not at all tired...

I feel like crying because I didn't realize the hazy feeling I was getting used to. My life has been slipping right by me and I am in a hazy sleep problem funk.

I do want to add that I also saw a herbalist and not only am I taking two of these at nite, I am now on Acai Berry supplements, and drink tea that has lavendar, chamomile and etc in it thru out the day. The herbalist is convinced I am one that needs to be gradually made sleepy starting at 5 pm so that by 10 pm I cant stand to be awake. This regimen also include 20 + minutes of aerobic conditioning done by 12 pm so that my brain sends the stress cortisol out of my body and then gives me all day to recover. Etc etc.

I am totally a sceptic and only saw her because my husband made me.

Did want to lastly mention, that you could also add a generic "melatonin" tablet, just one to this to give you a bigger dose.

Thank you midnite, I have tried ALL the herbal concoctions on the internet and this is working the best for me!

THANK YOU THANK YOU

I have struggled with chronic insomnia since I was a teenager. My mind doesn't seem to "shut off" like other people, and if I miss my window of opportunity to fall asleep, I will inevitably be up all night. I have tried Unisom (works well initially - but then leaves me feeling groggy after I have to up the dose), Ambien (just plain scary stuff), Calms Forte (no effect), Ignatia Amara (still leaves me restless), and Nature Made Sleep Aid (worst groggy hang-over effect of all the things I have tried). That said, this stuff doesn't leave me groggy at all, dissolves quickly allowing me to not get up for water, tastes great (no acrid after taste), and is all natural! Highly recommend it.

I love Midnites and have completely stopped taking any other sleep aid. Other sleep aids make me groggy even after 8 hours. My biggest problem was falling asleep, not staying asleep. That being said, this product is great if you are like me. If you have a hard time staying asleep, I wouldn't recommend it. I usually just take one capsule. The times I have tried two, I wake up a few hours later WIDE awake. I did not like the way two made me feel, but one feels very natural and have had no side effects.
