My neuro had suggested a Rx one but I asked about the plain OTC and she said it's fine. It works well for me and doesn't make me wake feeling like I was hit by a truck (unless I don't allow enough time for sleeping). The only caveat is that you have to go to bed and not fight it.
Yes, I know Benadryl as a sleep aide very well...this would be one of the cold medicines that I was taking for insomnia...It quit working for me as a sleep aide.
After 5 episodes of Boston Legal, I finally fell asleep around 530am.
I just woke up about 5 minutes ago. (it's 1245pm)
At least I managed to stay asleep for the most part, and had some seriously bizzaro dreams. Weird...and I didnt even take anything. Where the heck do the weird dreams come from?
