Bottom Line: Bryophyllum pinnatum is a herbal medication used in anthroposophic medicine, which has been shown to be associated with improvements in sleep quality during pregnancy with only few and minor or moderate side-effects reported.During treatment with B pinnatum, the PSQI decreased from 12.2 ± 3.62 to 9.1 ± 3.61 (P < .01), and ESS changed from 8.4 ± 3.18 to 7.1 ± 3.98 (P < .05).The treatment was well tolerated by the majority of patients, with only 6 patients reporting discomfort that might have been caused by B pinnatum (fatigue n = 3, dry throat n = 1, agitation n = 1, difficult digestion n = 1).

Mentions: ESS analysis revealed a statistically significant decrease in mean daily sleepiness (Figure 3; P = .048). On the other hand, no alteration in fatigue could be observed during the study period (36.6 ± 11.75 at the treatment start vs 36.2 ± 12.56 at the end of treatment, P = .802).
