Anyone tried this yet? Did it help you fall asleep?

by Ambien Seriousreply 2511/21/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 108/10/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 208/10/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 408/10/2012

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.

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?

by Ambien Seriousreply 808/10/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 908/10/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 1008/10/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 1108/10/2012

Thank you R7/R10.

by Ambien Seriousreply 1208/11/2012

Does nothing for me, but then, nothing short of two or three Ambien or Lunesta does it for me, and preferably more like four.

by Ambien Seriousreply 1308/11/2012

Wow, that isn't very good for you, Neely.

by Ambien Seriousreply 1408/11/2012

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?

by Ambien Seriousreply 1708/12/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 1908/13/2012

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.

by Ambien Seriousreply 2008/13/2012

Nope, didn't work at all. Oh, well. Back to Tylenol PM.

by Ambien Seriousreply 2108/13/2012

Drink a bottle of vodka first. Have a hot bath.

by Ambien Seriousreply 2208/13/2012

Yes half the dose should do it. Tried full dose and slept through alarm.

by Ambien Seriousreply 2308/13/2012

I took it and it didn't work

by Ambien Seriousreply 2411/21/2012

If I take this every night, can I still consider myself sober?
