Dramamine (dimenhydrinate) is available over-the-counter and is considered very safe when used as directed.
It is used primarily for motion sickness prevention, although it may cause drowsiness.
Products containing diphenhydramine (Unisom SleepGels, Simply Sleep, Sominex, Nytol) are more commonly used as sleep aids and are also available over-the-counter.
