Is it safe to take somnapure while pregnant? I use it but I am trying to get pregnant. I just want to know if I can continue to take it once pregnant.

Most experts: Agree that even "natural" supplements (herbs etc) should be AVOIDED in Pregnancy (And I for one AGREE with them) Ask your OB-GYN....he/she should be the final source of infomation on this issue! Hope this helps! Dr Z

I am 63 and have glaucoma. I use Xalatan generic drops latanoprost. Is it safe to use somnapure as a nightly sleepaid?

Yes: This has a disclaimer to avoid use in glaucoma but that is legal self-protection. It refers to a rarer type of glaucoma called narrow angle which you do not have. Use somnapure if it helps.

Is it ok to take zolpidem along with somnapure at night?

Is it ok to take zolpidem along with somnapure at night?

WHY BOTH?: Somnapure has a mix of several herbs for sedation. My question is why do you need to take both? If the zolpidem is ineffectual then you need to speak to your physician and perhaps try something new. Not too comfortable of this combination.

Is there any indication that Somnapure may cause conspitation?

Is there any indication that Somnapure may cause conspitation?

Not sure: The main ingredients, melatonin, valerian root, chamomile, lemon balm, hops are not associated with constipation. However if you notice a reaction in yourself using this, then it may be so for you. Supplements by definition are not tested the same for safety, efficacy and side effects as prescription or OTC drugs. If you get benefit from the somnapure, try adding fiber or a stool softener to help.

I'm on prednazone for a possible infection....Can I take somnapure?

Prednisone?: Not sure why you would be taking Prednisone for a "possible infection" when this agent could potentially make an infection much worse. Regardless, this dietary supplement would be fine to take while you are on steroids (prednisone).

I just received my free trial of somnapure pm. When I opened the bottle there was a very strong odor of what appears to be yeast? Is that normal?

Somnapure: This supplement has hops as one of its ingredients. This is the stabilizing agent in beer. Perhaps that is what you are smelling when you open the bottle. However, if you are concerned about the safety, it is always safe to not take this product (which has not been tested to FDA specifications for safety or efficacy).

Could the ingredients of Somnapure elevate blood pressure?

Could the ingredients of Somnapure elevate blood pressure?

Unlikely: The herbal ingredients in somnapure are all geared towards helping you relax and sleep better. Each ingredient on its own and combined in this product should not elevate your blood pressure. However if you are mixing it with some other prescription medication that might cause an interaction that could raise your blood pressure. Check with your doctor or pharmacist for possible interactions

Try something else: Somnapure is a mixture of melatonin and herbal products that has never been tested in a controlled setting to see if it's better than a placebo. Worse, it's classified as a food supplement and is unregulated meaning you could have significant variability in the product from bottle to bottle or even capsule to capsule.
