Right now I am struggling to move through this morning due to some sort of sleeping pill hangover.
Last night I took an Advil PM so I could fall sleep at a reasonable hour. This little pill didn’t put me to sleep, it knocked me the F out for 12 hours!
As I plan my escape to the other side of the world next week, I’m wondering what I should bring with me so I can sleep peacefully for 8 hours and NOT feel like this when I wake up. Jet lag is hard enough without this added element!
Going to London and China I used Ambien which worked well. But on one trip to London, it failed to knock me out, and I had to suffer with a massive headache for the 11 hour flight. While in living in London, I bought some over-the-counter sleep aids which are JUST the right dosage, but they sell them in the US unfortunately. Back in the day when I hoped the pond several times a year I had a nice little stash, but that is long gone.
Lunesta is the other one people like. I’ve heard Valium from others. Tylenol PM never works for me at home so I don’t see how it could be effective on a plane.
I’m the kind of person who hates taking pills, especially ones that aren’t natural. I usually don’t even take an aid when I get a headache.So, this is a predicament for me.
Any thoughts??? What works for you?? Please share in the comments below! Thank you in advance :)Tweet this!
