  • generic Benadryl...that is all any of the over the counter sleep aids have in them that is active. Sleep aids are the biggest ripoff because you can buy generic Benadryl (diphenhydramine) for pennies a tablet. 25 to 50 mg is all you need for a good nights sleep

  • Benadryl is a good choice, Unisom is good, and if those don't really work for you, you can ask your doc about a prescription sleep aid. I have a friend that can't take Benadryl because it hypes her up like crazy.

  • Melatonin is the only safe thing, it's natural, it's what your brain is supposed to make to tell your body to sleep.

  • I personally would also recommend melatonin. I use it when I can't sleep. It is all natural and doesn't have any side effects and you do not form a dependency to it either.
