While I’m not a big fan of being on medication 24/7, sometimes you’re stressed out and finding the best OTC sleep aid can REALLY help.
You know what happens: Your mind is going. You’ve tried reading, doing a bit of work, walking around and nothing’s making you pass out…
You just want a good night’s rest for the next day.
Maybe you’ve got an important meeting. Maybe you just want to be productive…
Whatever it is you know that YOU NEED YOUR SLEEP, but you don’t want to be hopped up on some crazy prescription tranquilizers.
I’ve played around with a few over-the-counter things and found a combo that usually knocks me out.
It’s 100% safe, cheap, and there’s nothing in it that’s super hard on your body (no, it’s not Valium).
Over-The-Counter Sleep Aid: Nightshade Recipe
- 1 x Gravol (Dimenhydrinate), 50 mg – Get here
- 1 x extra strength Tylenol (Acetaminophen), 500 mg – Get here
- 2 x Melatonin sublingual, total 10 mg – Get here
Gravol is an anti-nausea pill that’s part of a family of old-school anti-histamines (used for allergies) that has the common side effect of drowsiness/sleepiness.
Tylenol is a common pain-killer, which can make people sedated.
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland that helps control sleep and wake cycles. Those with constant changing cycles, or who need to get used to a cycle that’s not aligned with the common circadian rhythm (e.g. night-shift workers) take it to get used to sleeping during the day, while everyone else sleeps at night.
Time to act: 30-60 minutes.
Again – everything in “Nightshade” is very light on your body and CHEAP (no $300 pills here).
I also don’t go for the name brand stuff, I don’t see the point. So in total, one nightshade cocktail runs you a bit over 20 cents.
Grab the ingredients below and get some good rest NOW. 🙂
