This higher dosage backfires for me and my teenaged daughters. Although we definitely fall asleep easily, we then wake up in the early morning hours and have trouble getting back to sleep. I think a timed-release formula for higher dose formulas might be best.
The capsules are a bit hard to swallow but other than that, this is a great for getting a good nights sleep. I found that the 10mg is a bit to strong for me. The next morning i wake up still feeling groggy...The 3mg is the best to use.
