Hmmm. The most I find is that is treats depression. I don't suffer from depression. (knock on wood!)

lol...

It is used for several different things. Some use it to help with cravings. I have taken it to help me relax so I can fall asleep at night. It is also used during the day to help with stress.

Any of those ring a bell?

I take it when I am feeling anxious (a feeling that can be close to cravings).
I don't take it much any more but I still do occasionally and keep on hand.
I tend to take it mid-day not at night. It can cause vivid dreams, but I've never had that effect . . . probably because I never take before bed. I recommend starting with 50mg and take more if needed. Sometimes it is bundled with St johns Wort (for depression, I guess), but I don't combine it.

most frequently used to treat depression. I believe it influences serotonin levels in the brain so it might help with cravings as well.
