If you are anything like me you have those occasional nights of restless sleep. For me they go like this: wide awake until 3am, fall asleep and wake up at 4:30, then at 5, then at 6, and up for the day by 7am. By that time I am basically a walking zombie and can’t function due to lack of sleep.
I don’t like taking medication when I can help it so I have steered clear of sleep aids until now. ZzzQuil offered me a bottle to test out. The nice thing is Zzzquil is not habit forming, so I can keep it in my medicine cabinet for those nights where I just can’t sleep.
I tried ZzzQuil out for two nights and both nights were full of GREAT sleep. I woke up the next morning ready to tackle the day and full of energy (it’s amazing what a good night’s sleep will do, am I right?). I was also happy and my normal thin patience was much better than usual. ZzzQuil is a staple in my bathroom arsenal – right next to NyQuil, Dayquil, and aspirin. The liquid is easy to swallow – not thick and actually tastes pretty good! No aftertaste like normal liquids either. I drifted off to sleep within an hour of taking the dosage and had a wonderful night’s sleep both times.
ZzzQuil contains diphenhydramine HCI, which is a big word for a small compound that helps you sleep. To help you stay awake and alert, your body produces histamine, a naturally occurring substance that interacts with receptors in your brain to promote wakefulness. Diphenhydramine acts as an antihistamine, which blocks your brain’s alertness to make you feel the opposite: drowsy.
I would definitely recommend ZzzQuil to anyone 12 and older who occasionally has a difficult time falling asleep. So much more effective than the usual warm milk and milder than a prescription.
