Which Sleep Aids Are Best?

If you ask anyone who’s had a problem getting enough sleep how they feel, they will readily admit how it can wreak havoc on the body. Without the proper amount of sleep, you don’t feel well and you can’t function right, either.

But if you’ve done all you can to bring on a good night’s sleep - like having a comfortable bed, sleeping in a darkened room and avoiding anything that stimulates the senses like caffeine - and you still can’t sleep, then you need some extra help.

If you can’t sleep because there are noises keeping you up at night and you don’t like ear plugs, then use a machine that produces white noise or use a CD that has soothing nature sounds like crashing ocean waves or the sound of a gentle rain.

You can also find some extra help to get to sleep by using sleep aids. There are many different types you can get and some are natural and some are not.

If you want to use natural sleep aids, you can try herbal supplements. You can also try exercises to relax or engage in forms of meditation.

There are also natural food choices that can help you get to sleep. You can try having some warm milk before bed or drinking some chamomile tea. Some foods, such as those containing magnesium, can help you get to sleep.

A natural sleep aid that you can take is melatonin, which helps prepare the body for sleep. It’s an all-natural aid without groggy, morning after side effects and you can buy it in pill form.

But over the counter medications can also be helpful so that you can get the sleep that you have to have for a healthy lifestyle.

One popular and effective kind contains doxylamine. This is an ingredient that causes drowsiness. You can buy this product inexpensively.

Whichever sleep aid you decide to choose, if you pick a medication there are three points you need to be aware of. First, you need to know what the side effects are.

You don’t want something that’s going to interfere with your waking hours and you don’t want side effects like headaches that leave you feeling uncomfortable and cause you pain when you wake up.

Secondly, you need to understand the addictive quality of the medication versus how long you plan to take it. Some sleep aids are better for long-term use than others are.

Finally, sometimes sleeping pills can actually cause sleeplessness when you’re finished taking them - so you want to make sure you know if the medication has a cycle effect.
