You're usually out after an hour of taking them but it's a nice way to ensure you get 8 hours.


They help you sleep as well as make sure you stay asleep?

I take Soma ( http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0000717/ ) to help me sleep.
Otherwise, I have to stay awake for 40+ hours before I can fall asleep.
OTC sleeping pills and such have no effect on me.
Normal OTC sleeping pills, where you would take 1 to make you fall asleep, I have to take like 6 over the course of 2 - 3 hours before they even make my drowsy.

Diphenhydramine doesn't do shit for me either.
But, Doxylamine does a little bit. Sometimes.



@Neo Evil11... Try an OTC sleeping pill that has Doxylamine.

Or this stuff (Click image for a Walmart page):
This stuff works better for me than Diphenhydramine or Doxylamine based sleep aids.

Getting a Rx for Zolpidem (Ambien generic) is pretty damn easy in my experience, and they definitely do the job well. I'd take one and be out in 20-30min flat. The only issue with prescription sleep aids is you can become dependent on them. I had to stop taking them because it got to the point where I couldn't sleep at all unless I took one.

edit: and those dreams they can give you. Man... good times...

i take sleeping pill placebos. they're not actually sleeping pills, they're just bits of sugar that i put in my mouth and imagine they're sleeping pills. they get me to sleep with no adverse effects. brilliant.

If you know they're placebos then they're having absolutely no effect on you.

yes, ofcourse, but you see i place a sticker on them that says 'sleeping pill' before i take them. i get severely confused and assume it's just a sleeping pill and when i take them i am in blissful ignorance until the next time i take it.

In order to sleep, you must first feel drowsy. If you can't feel drowsy, then go outside and/or excersice you lazy bastard.

I've been falling asleep to the second half of Transatlanticism and The Earth is Not a Cold Dead Place for a few weeks now. Works like a charm.

() by Sigur Ros was my sleep aid for a while. Transatlanticism is a good choice as well, though.
