Has Anyone Tried Vital Nutrients Sleep Aide?

I just got this supplement from my doctor. It says it is for relief of occasional sleeplessness. I have insomnia almost every night. My doctor is concerned about how I am going to react to this supplement because I am so super sensitive to so many things. This contains passionflower herb, lemon balm leaf, hops strobile, california poppy herb, valeriana officinals root, L-theanine, lavender essential oil and melatonin. I currently take L-theanine and melatonin at a higher dose than what is in this supplement. I don't seem to have any bad side effects from them. However, some nights I sleep and some nights I don't.

I know some people that use this forum have had good luck with valerian, which I'm guessing is what this valeriana officinalis root is. Anyone tried some of the other ingredients?

I hope I hear from some of you. It is scary starting something new because when I do react, it can take close to 48 hours to get out of my system. My reaction is usually extreme anxiety and agitation.

This supplement contains no binders, gluten, wheat, yeast, milk/dairy, corn protein, soy protein, eggs, sugar, hydrogenated oil, artificail coloring, artificial flavoring or preservative. If and when I try it, I'll let you know. If I chicken out, I can always return it unopened to my doctor and get a refund. It cost about $30 for 60 capsules and recommends 1 or 2 capsules 15-30 minutes before bedtime. Not a bad price if it works for me. Bad price though if I have to discontinue it after the first try.

It's me again responding to my own post. This sleep supplement did not work for me. My doctor was concerned that it wouldn't since I am sensitive to so many things. I gave it a try and didn't get any sleep. I felt pretty relaxed but just couldn't sleep. Money down the drain once again.
