Can you get good sleeping pills at a store without a doctor's note? What type are the best?

I know people say they don't work but I'd like to at least try.

Report as

I recently tried sleeping pills for the first time in 57 years
and they were brilliant on the first night
then useless ever after.
I'd be taking them at 11pm
and then awake all night.

Sleep is helped by

a cold room,
very light or no clothing
an empty head (the hardest thing)
no sound or light flickers
a shower just prior

I don't have the secret of clearing the head but maybe

try thinking real happy thoughts only
think of the unwanted thoughts as a chatterbox you can control
make a comedy of what is worrying you
have a plan to get up and do useful things until a wave of sleepy hits you

Loss of sleep is a huge problem in modern society.

Before you go for a traditional "sleeping pill", please try Melatonin. You get it in the vitamins/supplement aisle of any drugstore/mass merchandiser, and it works with your body's chemistry to produce quality, restful sleep. It doesn't make you drowsy or drugged-out, it simply helps to replace what you are missing that is keeping you from sleeping.

Better be careful! They can become habit forming plus you run the risk of an overdose. I would suggest you see your doctor rather than try to self medicate.

Another supplement, Hawthorn, puts me to sleep and is heart healthy as well.
I have used generic Unisom as well. Basically its benadryl.

Another answer for melatonin... works like a charm. I have 5mg in pill form (and take one). I don't like taking medications, so googled it before buying; found out it has many other benefits as well. I would try that for a week straight to help establish a good sleep schedule and then try sleeping without it. I think for most of us it's the brain that won't shut off. Good luck!

Benadryl, NyQuil, melatonin, valerian root, chamomile, and more. There are many options at health food stores or drug stores. You just have to find what works for you.

Ambian , need a Rx for it though, but man it works but sometimes I don't remember the night before . Not the whole night but a few hours.
But when you sleep only 2-4 hours a day you have to do something about it and now I can get 6 at a time.

They are all the same, the active ingredient on all of them is benadryl. Pick up a box of generic benadril and save a lot of pesos!!
