DIDNT HELP..SO FRUSTRATING! SO I NOW HAVE DARK CIRLES UNDER MY EYES AND FEEL TIRED SO MUCH THAT MY BODY JUST DOESNT CARE IF I SLEEP OR NOT! SO I WALK AROUND LOOKING LIKE CRAP,AND FEELING SO TIRED I JUST WANNA NAP ANYWHERE I CAN....I HAVE STARTED TO TAKE "MELATONIN" IN THE EVENING ABOUT 3HRS. BEFORE BED,AND NOT HAVE ANY SUGAR,CAFFEINE ECT.. IT SEEMS TO HELP SOME AND I CAN AT LEAST CLOSE MY EYES AND REST..ANYONE HAVE ANY OTHER IDES THAT MAY NOT INCLUDE "ADDICTIVE" DRUGS???
