Sleeping Pills

Im looking for an OTC sleeping pill that will help me out this fri, I will be a bit dehydrated for a wrestling tourne on sat and want to try to get a decent nights sleep… anyone have any suggestions… post here or pm me.

You are likely referring to diphenhydramine, or by trade name, Unisom. I would not really recommend it if you are looking to get a “good” night of sleep. Diphenhydramine is actually a sedative antihistamine, thus it helps to induce sleep, but does not inherently improve the quality of it.

Instead of this, I would recommend using a standard dose of ZMA along with 5-HTP (1.5-2.0 mg/kg bodymass). Try it for a few days, and see how you like it first. Let me know how this works for you or if you need anything else.

I take a dose of zma and 3mg melatonin when i need to get good sleep. laters pk

ZOPLICONE!!!

You might want to try Melatonin 3, that’s what I use, and it helps make me sleepy, I don’t know if it will give you a good night sleep, but you won’t feel drowsy when you wake up, and you’ll sleep.

I got some Trazodone from someone and that stuff knocks me out. I get a nice, deep sleep and have some crazy dreams. I wake up feeling refreshed :slight_smile:

It is a prescription, but its possible you can buy it online.

So where do you buy it? I ran a google search and couldn’t find any stores selling seditol. Have you tried this yourself?

There isn’t a lot of information given on this product, but if it is made by the same guys that produce Relora (as the website implies), I’d be very skeptical.

If you don’t mind me asking - on what basis do you make this recommndation? Is this from your personal experience or are there studies supporting this? The reason i am asking is sleep or lack of it is sometimes a problem for me (work related) and so I am desperately searching for sleep aids.

thanks

I got some Trazadone from a friend at work. When I take it I have about thirty different fucked up dreams a night. It makes it hard for me to get my ass out of bed.

get some ambien

You can find Seditol here www.NaturalSleepSedativeRemedy.com . It’s the only place in the US that currently sells Seditol.

I take Melatonin and Valerian Root. Valerian helps me relax(turn off the chatter) and Melatonin helps me stay asleep. I do on occasion have some really wacked dreams, but those are usually attributed to work situations. One really can’t expect a good days sleep after doing telephone CPR on your good friend and mentor.

Hi 911 Girl,

I used to take Melatonin on “overdid the stimulant” days. My dosage was between 1 to 3 g. What is your max dose and do you know any site I can order from? Can’t get it in London. A friend in LA used to send me some.

I second the ambien call, tried some of my friend’s the other day and I got the best nights sleep. When I woke up I felt like a million bucks.

A note about Melatonin: I was unable to use 3g or 5g doses. It kept me awake at those doses. I tried Life Extension Foundation’s 750mcg the other day and it seemed to work fine. I fell asleep and stayed asleep for about 5-6 hours. Not ideal but better than a night of no sleep. Plus, a bottle of 60 capsules costs less than $5.

Valerian and hops is an effective and natural sedative.

I used it when doing exams and it seemed to help.

3 grams, holy mother I didnt think it came in that amount.

I love GABA, melatonin and ZMA. I have a lot of problems with stress and outside noise that make it hard to sleep. Taking those 3 makes me really drowsy and its really nice to have no problem sleeping. In my experience, melatonin doesnt make me drowsy, it just helps me too sleep longer.
