Q. Is Nytol Effective and Safe? I have been under excessive stress for the past few days mainly because of my new office. I find the working conditions quite hostile mainly because I have a social anxiety disorder.

My friend recommended <a href="">nytol</a> but I am not sure if this would be effective. Please advice..
