rest so plan on taking the pills an hour or two before you want to be
asleep so you will start getting drowsy. Also practice good sleep
hygiene by dimming/turning off lights, electronics, and anything that
isn’t white noise.
It didn’t hit me right away. It took about
an hour before I started to feel drowsy. I’ve read some reviews where
people said they experienced crazy or weird dreams but that didn’t
happen to me. It did give me this odd feeling though. It was like my
body was asleep but my mind was awake, or I was asleep and awake at the
same time. Almost as if I wasn’t in a deep sleep, I was asleep, just
aware of my surroundings too. It was odd. I also got this weird
twitching sensation going throughout my body once the drug started to
take effect. Almost like restless leg syndrome (which I have, ugh) but
throughout the whole body. It wasn’t violent like a seizure or anything,
it was just uncomfortable. I will say it did help me fall asleep. As
for staying asleep or waking up well rested, I feel like I woke up
feeling no better than I normally do when I get an adequate amount of
sleep. I was able to wake up to use the restroom so it doesn’t knock you
The main ingredient for ZZZQuil is diphenhydramine,
which is also the same ingredient as the allergy medication
Benadryl…which is known for making people drowsy. Coincidence? Well,
upon investigation (i.e. comparing my two labels), they are the same
drug, but they have two completely different inactive ingredients. What
does that mean? Well, it means you shouldn’t take ZZZQuil for allergies
basically. Speaking of which, if you do have allergies and plan on
taking ZZZQuil for sleep, do not take Benadryl at any point throughout
the day. The back of the packaging says not to use with any other drug
containing diphenhydramine, even on skin. So don’t do that!
Overall, I say yes, that product does work but like with most over the counter medications, use with caution.
