Nytol Herbal Tablets
Advantages: A gentle Herbal answer to good Sleep & don't have any side effects that i've noticed
Disadvantages: Wont' work so well if you take them too close to bedtime
I have alwys been a terrible sleeper since i was a young child, i've had everything from insomnia to horrific night terrors which have forever plagued my sleeping routine and oh what i would give to just be able to get to sleep normally without any problems, sleeping aids or nightmares. But unfortunately it doesn't seem like this is ever going to be the case for me, so i have had to try out a few different types of sleeping remedies to find what works best for me in order for me to live a healthy lifestyle by gaining enough sleep.
Those of you who have suffered with sleeping problems will know how badly lack of sleep can effect you during the daytime, i'm sure many of you are familiar with the frustration of being exhausted during the daytime and craving your bed, but then it comes to night time and you actually go to bed, you still can't sleep!
I was only about 13 years old when my GP suggested that i try the Herbal Nytol tablets to help me get to sleep, with me being so young he didn't reccomend that i try anything too strong and he thought that the herbal ones would be just right for me.
At the time, the tablets came in a little white tub with the Nytol label on it and it contained about 30 tablets at a price of £4.99. Now these tablets come in a Nytol box like the picture above and still contain 30 tablets and you can buy them for £4 - £5 in most chemists. The tablets aren't tiny but they are still small enough to small with ease, they are brown in colour with quite a pungent smell to them with them being herbal.
The instructions for taking the Nytol tablets say to take 2 tablets aproximately 1 hour before bedtime, so this is what i did for a few days but when it came time for me to go to bed i still wasn't tired enough to fall asleep. So i was quite disappointed, but i didn't want to give up on them yet. I tried taking them 3 hours before my bedtime instead, which would give them more than enought time to start working, and wow what a difference it made. I couldn't even keep my eyes open until my usual bedtime! I was thrilled that they were actually helping, i was even more thrilled the next morning when i woke up after having actually had a full nights sleep for once! They didn't give me any side effects and they didn't make me feel like i had a "hangover" the next morning as i've heard some sleeping tablets do.
I would definetely reccomend Nytol Herbal to those people who are having difficulty getting off to sleep, but as i say take them about 3 hours before it's time to go to bed rather than the 1 hour stated in the directions if you want to get the best results.
The tablets are suitable for adults and children over 12 years and the active ingredients it contains are;
Doctors advise to avoid alcohol while taking these tablets and also say they are not suitable for those taking antidepressant medications or propranolol. You should also consult your doctor before using them if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
