Does anyone out there use valerian for sleep? I have been taking 0.5 of klonopin for sleep for two years but is not working anymore and don't want to up dose. Rheumy added Sonoma but it didn't help at all. Friend suggested valerian root so got a bottle of capsules and have tried it a few nights. The first night it seemed to work but since then I have not slept hardly at all and when I do I have very vivid dreams and nightmares. Was wondering if valerian might be the cause. Have also stopped klonopin so could that be it. I'm desperate for a good nights sleep. The pain and fatigue is much worse.
