Newest Review: ... I tried a bit of DIY and bought some of Boot's own brand 'sleeping tablets' called Sleepeaze. Not a very original name, I grant you, but... more
good for occasional bouts of insomnia
Member Name: jipp05
Advantages: Cheaper than branded ones, really help to relax my body and prepare it for sleep
Disadvantages: Only a light sedative effect
I occasionally have trouble sleeping which can last for a few days at a time. When it gets to a couple of days then I usually have to take something to try and help me sleep a little better. I like Nytol and also Kalms tablets but I have found myself turning to boots own brand of over the counter sleeping tablets which are called Sleepeaze.
The reason that I have started to buy these over the more well-known brands is because it works out cheaper buying these than buying those and also because they contain the exact same active ingredient as Nytol do but in a higher dosage than the normal Nytol.
The active ingredient is Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride which is used as an antihistamine and as a sleep aid.
In Sleepeaze tablets the dosage is 50mg whereas in Nytol it is 25mg so these are a little bit more powerful. It also means that I save money as I only need to take one of these whereas with Nytol I need to take two.
They cost £4.59 which is for a box containing 20 tablets and this box can last me for months as I only like to take them for a couple of nights maximum at any one time.
When taking them I don't find them to be really powerful and they certainly don't just knock me out straight away but I do find that they seem to relax my body and make it easier for me to fall asleep.
I take one with a glass of water and after about 20 minutes I can feel it starting to get to work and 9 times out of 10 they relax my body enough to make it easier for me to fall asleep. They also have the added benefit of making my sleep deeper and when I actually do nod off I don't wake as much through the night and I always feel much more rested in the morning than when I don't take them.
As these are over the counter you don't need any sort of prescription to buy them and they are pretty safe to use but as they are actually a medicine it pays to read the enclosed leaflet to make sure that there are no contradictions to you taking them.
These are really good tablets and I find that they work well for me. For proper insomniacs then they probably won't do the job but for people like me who are only plagued by occasional bouts of sleeplessness they really do help with getting you a restful nights sleep.
