Anyone tried this yet? Did it help you fall asleep?
I saw a review from someone who said it didn't even make them drowsy. I guess it doesn't have the strength of plain old Nyquil which can really knock you out cold.
Yes it works great for me, and I'm a tough case. I have taken some sort of sleep aid almost every night for years. I don't respond as well to Benadryl as I do to this, although I know it's the same drug.
P.S. regular NyQuil has a different active ingredient for sleep that works better for some (doxylamine succinate instead of diphenhydramine).
I've taken Zzzquill quite a few times and it works great for me. Within about 30 I feel sleepy. I love it.

Then obviously you're psycho. Get help 'mo
I tried it. I don't know if they're changing the dosing, but it doesn't work as well for me as benadryl which has the same active ingredient.
The Voice of the Night
I've tied it and like it. With NyQuil it makes you weak and knocks you out within the hour. With zzzquil, you don't feel it and you won't feel weak or sleepy until you lay down.
It's pretty much a knock out within the hour vs. gentle Lull you to sleep when you finally decide to lay down.
It's becoming such a datalounge tradition, threads asking for advice on medication.
Why are so many queens taking so many pills?
Does this stuff keep you sleeping for a full 8 hours or do you wake up in the middle of the night? Benadryl doesn't keep me asleep all night.
I've been knocked out for 8 hours. If I am woken up sooner then that, I've found it easy to fall back asleep.
Thanks for the responses so far. I'll give it a shot although in the past benadryl makes me feel zonked out the morning after.
Thank you R7/R10.
Does nothing for me, but then, nothing short of two or three Ambien or Lunesta does it for me, and preferably more like four.
Wow, that isn't very good for you, Neely.
I've found Xambien works like a charm.
What about when you wake up the next day, does it make you feel groggy at all?
I took some Zzzqill last night at 1:30am and was asleep by 1:45am. Didn't wake up until 9:30 this morning and didn't feel the least bit groggy. Great stuff.
I have not felt groggy at all but I'm not doing full doze though. I'm actually just taking half of the recommended amount.
Nope, didn't work at all. Oh, well. Back to Tylenol PM.
Drink a bottle of vodka first. Have a hot bath.
Yes half the dose should do it. Tried full dose and slept through alarm.
I took it and it didn't work
If I take this every night, can I still consider myself sober?
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
