I ordered this primarily for axniety and sleep. Obviously, this will not work as well as prescription options, but it is non-addicting and natural. And when taking the maximum dose (6 capsules) for anxiety or sleep I found it did have a sedating effect, which surprised me because I usually have no luck with natural supplements. I would definitely recommend trying.
