These come in handy every month!!  They help with pain very well, and get me to sleep pretty quick.  I usually only take 1 at a time, but sometimes take 2 if I'm in bad pain.  I sometimes have strange dreams with these, but nothing too crazy.  I do feel groggy the next morning after taking these, but it is way better than being in pain and not able to sleep.  I definitely recommend these!

othing works better when I feel I will have a difficult time falling asleep. Valerian root and other products are good to relax me; however, to fall asleep I prefer Advil PM over anything else. Years ago I discussed it with my doctor and he recommended to try OTC pm tablets before going for a prescription. I would take 2 about three hours before going to bed. I would always wake up rested and without the slightest grogginess.

I discovered Advil PM a few weeks ago and I am obsessed. My teammates recommended it to me for sore muscles and as a sleeping aid on long flights. I take one pill when I’m traveling and it helps me fall asleep much easier. It also helps with my head aches and soreness. This is my new go to pill for pain relief at night when I need extra help falling asleep.

Easy to carry, staples in my backpack. You never know when soreness or a cold will sneak up on you so it’s relieving to have quick, accessible medicine that helps your ailments. They are easy to find anywhere so I never worry about running out. It’s nice to have an added sleep aide for those bad nights with a sore back or a bad cold.

Advil has always been my go-to OTC lain reliever. It works well in my bad knees and hands, and can also get rid of a headache if I have one. Effective for sleep as well, however, if it’s just sleep you’re looking for, just get generic Benadryl (diphenhydramine). That’s the same slew ingredient in all the PM pain reliever.

okay so the few times I have taken this pill it has worked magic because it knocks me out completely, it is effective within an hour or some times less BUT my personal downfall is that for some reason every time I take it my heart rate goes up and it freaks me out because it feels like its about to pop out of my chest.

I actually can’t live without this, is not that I’m addicted to this but that sometimes I get sore from working out and this helps with the muscle soreness.

It’s an ok sleep aid, if you suffer from insomnia I would go to a doctor for some pills but this can do the trick when you just have trouble sleeping once in a while.

Before getting pregnant Advil PM was a staple for me. 9 times out of 10 I reached for the bottle of Advil PM before laying down to sleep because if I didn't, my night would consist of constant tossing and turning, checking the time on the clock and eventually throwing my hands up in anger because yet again, I literally ran out of time to sleep for the day. I ALWAYS got a majorly needed good nights sleep when taking the PM's. If you have trouble sleeping or staying asleep throughout the night I absolutely suggest giving Advil PM a try. Your tired eyes will thank you.

I tried this stuff as a last resort but boy do I feel silly now. It was fast acting and even helped with a good nights rest! It did exactly what it said. It also had good warnings that you could read/see good. I liked the variety of sizes it comes in as well. Decent price as well.

I still remember the first time I had taken Advil PM...I was very uncomfortable with aches and pains everywhere from a downhill mountain biking accident. I was over tired which caused me even more lack of sleep. I was so frustrated!! I went out to a local drugstore, found Advil PM which I didn’t even know existed at the time!! As soon as I got home I took the recommended dose, crawled into bed, started to feel the pain ease up and next thing I knew I was fast asleep. What a great product!!! It’s a lifesaver!!

Does snyone know if this gives you pain relief and help sleeping? Or is it mostly just to help sleeping?
