If you are looking for a pill that is non prescription, I would go with melatonin. That worked well for me. When I took something that had the same active ingredient in it as benadryl it makes me feel very weird the next day. These are my experiences and I am just making a suggestion.

All sleeping pills have side effects, which can vary depending on the specific drug, the dosage, and how long the drug lasts in your system If sleeping pills are used over the long term, they are best used “as needed” instead of on a daily basis, in order to avoid dependence and tolerance..
But I can suggest Herbal sleep aids to you:
There are several herbs thought to help sleep, including chamomile, valerian root, lemon balm, passionflower, lavender, and St. John’s Wort. some data show that valerian is useful for insomnia..(but John’s Wort,can limit the effectiveness of many prescribed medications such as blood thinners, birth control pills, and some anticancer medications or chamomile may cause allergic reactions)
I think Behavioral(Relaxation techniques-Aerobic exercises ) and environmental changes can have more of a positive impact on sleep than sleeping pills, sleep aids, or other medications, without the risk of side effects or dependence.

I have Glaucoma and have been taking Diphenhydramine to help me sleep but it is drying my eyes too much. I am looking for a better sleep aid.
