Hi, took the tablet today for the first time, feels good, but somehow i feel very cold, is it normal? Can i take half a tablet? Thank you.
if I take one tablet and wait a few hours and am still not sleepy, is it alright to take a second?
Hi, I dream almost every night, can I take valerian forte? Thanks
Hi, I have been taken valerian forte for about one year, it was good for me! I'm very sensitive to chemicals. Recently I noticed after I take the tablet My heart rate is irregular and I also had strong headache on the next day. I was wandering are there anything changes in ingredients.
Hi.. I tried 1 tablet last night, but I still cannot sleep yet.
I already used the Valerian Forte and it was very good for me... Do you know if is there any problem to send this to Brazil?
Hi Dani,

Thanks for your post!

Valerian is known as a mild sedative and is not an addictive herb unlike some pharmaceutical prescription sedatives so you can take it regularly. Reports suggest you take it no longer than 4 months and we suggest you see a healthcare professional if your sleep problems continue after this amount of time. I hope this answers your question. If you require any further assistance feel free to phone the Blackmores Advisory Service on 1800 803 760.

Kind regards,

Is it safe to take every night? I have been taking this for a while now because it works so well with me and I have had no side effects
