Really ? Someone ought to tell that to my body. I travel three times a year between Tokyo and the States alone (RT). It hasn't worked for me ! In my case, it induces momentary grogginess, which passes after about twenty minutes. My father is a pharmacist, I've tried several brands. The label on one brand suggests to keep popping 'em each time you wake up, so I'm probably not the only person with this problem.

On the other hand, I know people its worked wonders for.
