In my herb books it says to take valerian tincture throughout day if flaring, before eating. Yes it can cause more vivid dreams, then try NOT taking it before sleeping for that situation or take less at that time of day maybe. If discontinuing after long term use, taper off slowly. I really like the stuff. Webmed's website has info on the herb.
-------------------- 7/2017: CBD oil solves some IBS spasming, expensive. Benadryl relaxes some spasming, but tiring and drying..Dizzy from presc. meds., yet still spasming.Taking less probios and more enzymes. No gluten. Weight steady. Less migraines and heartburn with double ginger bags and feverfew standardized, sometimes Imitrex. Body aches. Taking (non-frementing) methylcellulose caplets instead of having done acacia. Drinking 10C/day water constantly keeps away most trapped gas. Couldn't get disability.
