500 mg   Valerian
I believe I have been a victim of sleep apnea all my life. I have always had classic symptoms of this disorder. Chronic fatigue being the most problematic. I have been to a sleep disorder clinic and diagnosed with the same and was told it was severe. I used a C-pap machine with practically no success. It doesn't stay on. I always sub-consciously rip the thing off during sleep. This disorder is slowly killing me according to my doctor.

I recently tried Valerian for anxiety and not only does it produce the most intense dreams I have ever had but I think my apnea is gone. I feel more energy than I have ever had in my life.
