Most over the counter sleep aids contain either diphenhydramine (Benadryl) or doxylamine. (Alldex AN, Nytol Maximum Strength, Unisom)
Both products should be avoided in patients taking Aricept because they have opposing effects.
Talk with your pharmacist. He /she may be able to suggest a herbal product. Alternatively your doctor may be able to suggest a prescription sedative such as zolpidem.
