I wasn't quite sure if this would work for me as many of the over the counter sleep aids don't seem to help me. This one just helps turn off my brain so I can stop stressing and sleep. It also is okay to take if I wake up in the middle of the night and can't fall back asleep. No groggy side effects in the morning and helps me fall into a deep sleep within 10 or 15 min. I love it!

This does nothing for serious insomnia, but can help mild to moderate types, if you take at least 2-3. It helps for gentle sleep, but I find that I tend to wake up earlier than I'd when I fall asleep with calme forte's help. Maybe a time released version would take care of this.

Complete waste of money

    • Ineffective

    Best Uses

      Comments about Hyland's Calms Forte Sleep Aid, Tablets, 100 ea:

      This product was a complete waste of money. It had absolutely no effect. As a matter of fact, instead of calming my mind to help me sleep, it made me MORE upset, as I lay there not being able to sleep and thinking about how I had thrown away my money buying this placebo! I took the full 3-pill dosage when I awoke in the night, after about 2 hours of sleep on my own without any medication. I was really hoping to find a non-drug alternative to help me sleep... the search continues.

        This product did just the opposite for me. I used it a few times and my sleep was very light surface type sleep. It seemed to busy my mind versus calm it. My husband had a very similar effect. Back to Valerian Root for me.

          I use Calms Forte not as a sleep aid, but rather to help relieve anxiety & stress. This stuff is amazing! It's been around for years....I remember my Mom saying she took it for her "nerves".

            I don't use this every night but when I do I notice I wake up feeling rested, this is a big change as I used to wake up (from the alarm clock) and just wanted to keep hitting the snooze. This product has a very mild effect for me as it helps me sleep more soundly but doesn't leave me with that groggy feeling in the morning.

            I have noticed it seems most effective the second day I take it. For me I think it was because I needed a couple of nights to get 'caught up' on my sleep.

              Comments about Hyland's Calms Forte Sleep Aid, Tablets, 100 ea:

              I am a night shift nurse and I began using CF after trying almost everything else. I hated the groggy feeling Benadryl-type medications left me with and I didn't want to take so much Ambien (didn't work anyway and much more expensive). So, I decided I had nothing to lose by trying CF. Thank goodness I did!!! I will never be without my Calms again. I mostly use it for sleep but on one or two occasions also used it for anxiety and it worked for that also. I wholeheartedly recommend this product!

              If you are willing to try it for 2-4 days before you REALLY get a good nights sleep it is worth it. As I usually wake up 4+ times a night and this helped keep me asleep and make it easier to fall back asleep when I did wake up

              Calming. Not only to go to bed - but to prepare for a situation that will cause you stress or anxiety. Sleep is wonderful and you wake up like a champ. BEFORE your alarm clock. Wonderful natural stuff.

                Comments about Hyland's Calms Forte Sleep Aid, Tablets, 100 ea:

                I didn't realize until I used two tablets that this product IS NOT considered gluten free by Hyland's own website FAQs: "Does Calms Forté contain any gluten? Yes. Calms Forté contains Oatseed from the medicine Avena sativa (oat plant)." I am not Celiac, but highly allergic to wheat and I avoid oats and corn because it can cause a gluten reaction for those of us with autoimmune disease. I usually check products ahead of time, but didn't think a homeopathic product would be a problem. My bad.

                    I have been struggling with insomnia for a few months, partly due to severe anxiety/panic attacks I was encountering at night. I just couldn't relax much less did I want to use a prescription drug, in fear of nasty side effects. So upon my first night of use of calms forte, I slept a full 8 hours. I can't tell you how relieved I feel now, I am up during the day with no grogginess to speak of and I feel refreshed when I rise in the morning. The late night anxiety I had been encountering before has diminished. I highly recommend trying calms out, it's a great option for those struggling with late stressful nights.
