Sleep disturbance caused by Kalms Herbal Sleeping tablets?

I struggle with anxiety and have recently started taking Kalms Herbal Sleeping Tablets . Taking these tablets have lowered my anxiety (but can make feel spaced out ) and i am also having problems waking up falling in and out of sleep. Furthermore on a couple of occasions i have had dream which are very vivid ( I cant even for definite say they aren t real) where I am running round the house panicking almost semi conscious. Could this disturbance in sleep be connected to the Kalms as I haven t had these problems previously, but i was under the impression as they were herbal they would be like this.

Hello ,

let me wish you a very happy new year to you and family

before we conclude that you have anxiety alone, i feel that you may be having a sleep related problem called as restless leg syndrome. This needs to be excluded by tests. It is important to understand that in the modern medicine, i donot feel herbal preparations without any definite evidence will help reduce your problem. Yes, some herbal medicines may have chemicals which infact worsen your problem. I hope this will help you. If not please call me after 9 pm to resolve this issue so that i can help you better.

Best wishes
