    Sorry, maybe this is the wrong forum.

    Anyone know of any good sleeping aids? I keep waking up every couple of hours during the night and sometimes it's hard to go back to sleep.

    Thanks.

    Do you have experience with it? I've heard ZMA doesn't really do anything unless you're deficient in Zinc.

    I am very stressed out. Sometimes I'll take half a benadryl before bed. I don't like using Nyquil cuz it can be addictive.

    Melatonin works for me.

    Actifed or generic forms of it works for me...


    It's a nasal decongestant but has drowzy effects and always makes me too tired to function if I take it at the end of the day when I want to sleep... I can stay awake on it if I want to because it isn't that strong, but I sleep like a corpse once I've gone to bed.

    :dunno: give it a try.

    ZMA doesn't help you fall asleep just makes you sleep deeper for some reason. It works incredibly well for me, but doesn't work on my mom. I'm not Zinc deficient either, I take my multis.

    Wouldn't the drowsy effects come from diphenhydramine HCl (benadryl)? That's what most cold/allergy medicines have in them I think.
