Dear Renette
I can't really judge because I don't have the ingredients list for either of these over-the-counter products. However if you are already experiencing insomnia, then I presume that one or both products contain ingredients like synephrine which can cause a whole list of negative side-effects (dependence, addiction, tremors, insomnia, palpitations, irritability, psychotic reactions). These products have been banned in many countries because of their negative side-effects, which include addiction and dependence. Other ingredients like caffeine, guarana, and bitter orange extract will also make you jittery and prevent sleep. Rather use a low-fat high-fibre diet and plenty of regular exercise to lose your weight without harming your health.
Best regards
