    I've used restavit it in the past and whilst pregnant. It's a muscle relaxant so it works by relaxing you for sleep but it does mean it can leave you a bit groggy and floppy in the morning. I find 1/4 is enough to get me off to sleep without leaving me too lethargic in the morning,

    Drink plenty of water when you take restavit or you get clag mouth!

    I take 1/2 if I really need it. Dose is up to 2 tabs. I did that once and felt like I'd been hit by a truck for 24 hours afterwards.

    Restavit was good for me to get to sleep but didn't stop me waking up

    Default Insomnia, restless sleep, help

    I also take half a restavit occasionally when I just need a really decent sleep, works really well and don't feel too bad in the morning.

    I take Doxylamine which is a chemist brand OTC. I take a full one. I have problems falling asleep and staying asleep. Last night I went to bed at 8.30 and slept until 7 this morning after taking one. The night before I managed a grand total of 3 broken hours which was the 5th night in a row of crappy sleep. I'll take another tonight as well.

    I use Dozile for my insomnia, it's short acting so you don't wake up tired the next day xo

    Unisom (Doxylamine succinate) and occasionally Restavit, but I do found that Restavit dries out my sinus' a lot more. If there is pain with the sleeplessness, e.g neck ache/headache I use Codeine with a calmative in it (you can ask your Pharmacist for it over the counter) which helps also.

    Doxylamine is the active ingredient in restavit so it sounds like there are a few brands around of the same thing.
