Thanks for your reply, I have very disturbing dreams. It does help me sleep. but the dreams I have put me on edge. I was just wondering if anyone else experienced bad dreams. Sounds like you enjoy your sleep time, I might try something else.I don't use Valarian, it never did anything for me and deep sleep. But I use low dose melatonin, Calms Forte' (homeopathic) and use HGH homeopathic gel daily for anti aging benefits and I have deep sleep and vivid dreams but I enjoy my dreams..I go to another world when I'm sleeping.
I guess we just have to live with the vivid dreams which would be okay, but mine are flashbacks that I don't want. I almost never dream unless I take valerian , I probably will go back to melatonin. Another issue I seem to have when using valerian is that my blood pressure drops to low.? Thanks for your reply.I have the same problem with melatonin, Norman. Very disturbing dreams. But I still take melatonin. I haven't found much of anything that will help me get to sleep and stay there. Also, melatonin reserves at older age diminish. It's also a very good antioxidant.
Each herb (like each pharmaceutical) can affect one person differently than someone else. Valerian has been so noted:When I use Valerian to help me sleep, I have vivid alarming dreams. Does anyone else experience this when using Valerian?
