  • I've tried lots of things lately. So far the only thing that works is hot chocolate but I'm out of milk and cocoa tonight so here we are!

  • I bought some melatonin (3 mg) for me but it makes me feel wonky the next day if I don't get enough hours, so I am giving it to my hubby. Works good for him.

    Valerian is good too.

  • Tylenol PM works for me.

  • Have you tried Benadryl? Even though it's an antihistamine it's the sleep aid ingredient in Tylenol PM.

  • melatonin - won't make you go to sleep, only helps you go to sleep and you don't wake up groggy

  • Most OTC sleep aids contain diphenhydramine which is Benadryl. I usually buy generic diphenhydramine because it's so cheap, sometimes 24 for $1.
