Intake of these entire supplements is not a good idea. For fewer days it is ok but in a few days they make you habitual to it and that is more and more harmful for us. Supplements are not bad but especially for sleeping utilizing medicine is not a good idea. In some cases, we have seen that to leave on bad habits people adapt another bad habit that is not the way to live life. Without consulting your physician you are requested not to use any kind of tabs for sleep enhancement.
