I have suffered with deep depressions for over 20 years.I was taking medications for depression and anxiety and panick attacks.And everything I was prescribed just made it worst.To the point I could not bend my legs.So I have gotten off most of my medications.And only take 15mg of paxil.While I was on my medications I slept like a baby in fact way to much.But now I have trouble sleeping.Can anyone tell me what over the counter safe and effective sleeping pill I should try?
There are many. There's a whole section in the pain area of the drug store. What I take is plain old Benedryl. Most of the Sleep meds have a pain ingredient also. Like Advil PM or Tylenol PM, and the med in them that causes the drowsiness is the same thing as in Benedryl. Since I take other pain med, I don't need more. My doctor OK'd Benedryl for me.
I agree with someone who said melatonin. Although I took it and had vivid dreams and nightmares. Yet it is safe and natural. There is also chamomile tea with rose hips and lavender that can be very soothing. I would not try benadryl. It isn't for sleep although the active ingredient diphenhydramine is in many over the counter sleep aids. And most of these sleep aids don't work well.
