Juan, Juan - 01/14/2014

Like millions of other folks, sleep is not smhetoing that normally comes easily to me. I have suffered from insomnia on some level for just about since the days I was being told by somebody when to go to bed. A nightly ritual that includes sleeping pills in some form has been a routine now for years. I long ago gave up prescription meds as an answer to the problem. Not because they are expensive or that I am concerned about side effects. But because I grew tired of keeping doctors rich by having to visit them every six months or so just to tell them that the same insomnia problem I have had for over 40 years is still with me. Although I have tried different brands and formulas of over the counter meds over the years, I have pretty much settled into some store brand version of Unisom now for quite some time. Long ago I gave up wasting money on name brand meds, so it was just a question of hunting down the same ingredients in a store or generic brand. At just around $15 for a two pack of the Members Mark, this is the best deal for this formula that I have been able to locate. At 192 softgels an order, you are getting almost a full 7 month supply in one package if taken every day. I have not seen any better deal in stores, or here on Amazon. Also, keep in mind that despite another reviewer here that claims this is not the same Unisom formula, it is indeed the exact same ingredients as compared to the Unisom softgels. (The tablets for some reason use a different active ingredient). I have had excellent results with the softgel formula under a variety of labels for years now and this Members Mark brand is no exception. I have been taking them for about two months and they do as an effective a job of putting me to sleep as any other I have tried. As far as service, the delivery of this order was fast and with good communication. I highly recommend the Members Mark twin pack if you are a regular user of either Unisom, or some equivalent of it. Or if you are just new to needing smhetoing to help you get to sleep. They work well and are a great deal here on Amazon
