    My concern would be (if travelling alone) is trusting other ppl. I fell asleep on a long bus ride when I was a teen and woke up to some sleeze trying to put his hand in my pants!

    Op glad you're going to see your Dr. I'm an overweight girl (you may not be!) and the Dr was really reluctant to prescribe me anything to help me sleep on a long haul flight. At the time, I was also on the pill and a smoker - yup a picture of health!
    The Dr's rationale was that I had several risk factors to do with DVT common on long haul flights and he didn't want me to sleep. He said the more moving about I did the better!

    But if you're good to go - and Dr is happy to prescribe you something, temazepam has worked for me in the past without nasty grogginess.
    For an over the counter, restavit might be ok, depending on your tolerance. I'd try it out before you go away to see what happens. Half a tablet is usually enough for me to drift off and I'm not too groggy afterwards. Anymore than 1/2 a tab and I feel like i've been run over.

    I used Valium but prefer sleeping tablets like zolpidem on long haul flights. I would try out the sleeping tablet long before you go to see how you react. If I take half a sleeping tablet I sleep for four hours, whole tablet, 8 hours. Don't drink any alcohol prior. It's good to be seated on edge of the middle isle so people can still get up without disturbing you

    The gp was very accommodating, I left with a script for temaz and valium so I think I'm sorted! Thanks for your help everyone, at least I know the temaz shouldn't leave me with a hangover.
