    At first, I was leary. I kind of expected this product would put my daughter into a drowsy "stoned" state, but that's not the case at all! She is much more dramatic than my other two children were and has been very emotional since infancy. She throws tantrums and cries like neither of my other children and she often wakes crying in the night, even at 2 1/2 years old. I needed to find something to stop her suffering and save my sanity. This was absolutely the cure I was looking for. There was a decided improvement in her behavior from the first day. I used it for a week and wondered if the improvement was just a coincidence so I stopped for a week and her mood-swings returned. She does not seem drugged-up or droopy, just a happy toddler. She sleeps great now and I've noticed that she even seems to be able to focus better when she has taken Super Calm. If we don't give it to her, she has behavior problems at daycare and more potty-training accidents. Just one or two dropperfulls after dinner and she's good for the whole next day!
    The only con is the taste. It's absolutely terrible and I don't know why my daughter agrees to take it, but I'm glad she does. We have some herbal immune-booster drops that I give her at the same time and those taste really good. I have to bribe her with the yummy drops to get her to take the nasty Super Calm drops.

    Doesn't seem to work all that well for our 7 yr old. Warm milk seems to work better actually for him but everyone is different.

    Comments about Herbs for Kids Valerian Super Calm Herbal Supplement Drops, 2 fl oz:

    I swear by valerian!
    A few days of regular consumption (once before bed) goes beyond what a year of therapy has done for my 9-year old daughter.
    It magically helps her overcome her separation anxiety, which can get to the point of severe anxiety attacks.
    Occasionally, she would forget to take the drops for a day or two, which causes her behavior to change immediately.

      Comments about Herbs for Kids Valerian Super Calm Herbal Supplement Drops, 2 fl oz:

      I only marked this down due to the taste and smell. We bought this product to help our 6-year-old with ADHD focus and not get so worked up emotionally. It has been wonderful! He takes 3mL once daily in the morning. It tastes terrible, so we mix it with a little juice to make it managable. We saw a difference the first day and have been very pleased with his ability to concentrate. He plays better with his siblings - not getting as emotionally worked up. He also responds better to instructions. This doesn't make him sleepy and we haven't noticed any other side effects. Our 3-year-old was jelouse of his brother having this, so now he gets 2 mL in the morning as well. He is much more calm, less irritable and whiney. I'll take it!!

        Comments about Herbs for Kids Valerian Super Calm Herbal Supplement Drops, 2 fl oz:

        I don't give my 58lb 7 yr old son the 'recommended' dose of 2mL-3x's daily. I give him 2mL-1x. He has taken it 2 days in a row. Within 45min-1hr of taking it, he settled down & played with toys rather than needing constant redirection to stay out of trouble. I give him 2 Focus Factor wafers for kids, along with 4 Nordic Naturals DHA gels for children. The combination is working wonders. He's gone from being extremely angry, touchy, emotional...about everything, & ready to blow a fuse in seconds, to being a happy, giggling 7 yr old who loves building with mega-blocks and legos. No fights with or pestering of siblings, no tantrums, simply a healthy happy boy that is calm! I'm loving this product. My 7 yr old hates the taste & keeps a drink handy when taking it. I wish it tasted & smelled better. This is why I rated it a 4 instead of 5.

        I tried this with my 2 year old son, who was at the least out of control most days. I was at my witts end and thought it couldnt hurt to try... It worked! Instead of re-directing him all day, he plays with his brother and sister and makes great choices! It doesnt make him have a "medicated" effect or a "stoned" effect which was one of my worries. It works fast and you can 100% tell when it wears off as he will start to jump on furiture and run around like a crazy man :) This has changed my life for the better and it has helped him keep focussed and play!

        Comments about Herbs for Kids Valerian Super Calm Herbal Supplement Drops, 2 fl oz:

        my family has used this product and formulas like it for years. i have only good to say about Valerian, it is mild yet effective and very safe. the only potentially negative thing any of us observed is that it can enhance dreaming for some people- my husband experienced very vivid emotional dreams when he used it, so he avoids. none of the rest of us have ever had any disruptive effects.

        i am CFIDS and have poor sleep quality as a result, plus there are times when i have had coffee too late in the day and can't get to sleep later- Valerian and other calming herbs help my adrenals relax & body unwind. My Spectrum son is also ADHD and has a terrible time getting his mind to 'turn off' so he can get to sleep, he has a lot of "brain noise" that interrupts his sleep quality and often wakes up tired. in fact both my sons, mother and myself often wake feeling like a truck ran over us... valerian has helped us all to have more refreshing sleep and easier mornings.

        we do not use Valerian every night, there is the concern that overuse could render it ineffective over time, or possibly dependency... we prefer to take a dropperful or two on those nights when we can tell its going to be difficult, and allow ourselves breaks from it at other times. we also practice other calming techniques and pay attention to the sense that arrives within about 20min that the herbals are taking effect. if you ignore it at that point, your adrenals will kick back into overdrive and backlash insomnia will result, so its important to heed any level of sleepiness that comes!
        this formula is mild tasting, we all take it straight, under the tongue.

        hope others find it as helpful as we do!

          My son has hard a hard time sleeping since he was about 4. He has an extremely active mind and can't seem to shut it off. I mix this with some Melatonin and it works! He falls asleep in a normal amount of time and he generally stays asleep all night. He is able to wake up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom and then go back to sleep. This had been a problem in the past.

          He is now 9 and we have been using this mixture for about 4 years without any side effects or problems.

              I have been using this for several months on my 2.5 year old boy. I've taken it on airplanes to help calm him. I add a dropper or two into his diluted apple juice about once a day. We quit using it for about 2 months when we tried to get him off apple juice and we went away to the Oregon coast (4 hr drive from Seattle) and he was acting up the whole weekend-tantrums etc. We resumed the drops when we returned and he started to cooperate again, listening to our commands, etc. It doesn't get him to sleep though (we tried this on airplane rides) but helps him from being super cranky.
