I have taken the Calms Forte for adults intermittently for several years to help with sleep. So when my grandson James was born and as he got older he became progressively more and more hyper, I discussed the childrens brand of Calms Forte 4 Kids with her. As she did not want to put him on any of the traditional meds for this disorder she agreed to try it. From the very first time she used it to the present day, this medication has been very helpful for James. He is much calmer and his behavior has greatly improved. He was also having issues in school related to not paying attention or sitting still. That has all changed, and he is doing much better in school. Also @ night he is not longer restless while sleeping. Before Calms Forte, he would get up at least 3 times a night and when he was sleeping, he was all over the bed. Now he sleeps through the night and is no longer a restless sleeper. His dosage is 2 tablets every 4 hours, 3 times a day. This medication has been wonderful for him, and there have been no side effects at all. He is not lethargic during the day, and he remains active and playful with his peers.


My 6 year old took Calms Forte last night for the first time and had night terrors all night! He normally has a hard time getting to sleep and wakes up frequently. However Calm’s made him aggressive and had him screaming on and off all night. Nobody in the family slept. Did not work for us!
