Have you found a supplement that you feel pretty sure is making you sleep deeper?

Asked by Aster (18577points) June 15th, 2017

I love experimenting with supplements always searching for the answer for all ills. I am just about certain that Krill Oil gelcaps, two per day, have changed my dreams from nightmares to pleasant ones and have made me sleep deeper and feel so rested when I awaken. How about you? Have you found your Magic pill?

A Bendydryl knock off from Dollar General.

^^^^. Yes; I remember when that made me sleep better but I read about side effects and stopped. Advil was fantastic but gave me bleeding ulcers and three days in the hospital.

Ensure helps me to sleep at night.

Melatonin seems to be noticeably effective.

^^^^^^ I take one mg of Melatonin every night. But I still had bad dreams and didn’t sleep as deeply since the krill oil.

Sleepytime tea seems to help me relax and doze off, especially if I eat a banana while I’m boiling the water. The downside is I’ll have to wake up and urinate more often during the night.

L-Tryptophan used to work wonders for me before it was pulled from the market.

Melatonin 5 mg taken eight hours before I need to get up is great, but only once or twice a week.

It took a lot of adjustment and different products, avoiding a number of of foods, but now I take magnesium glycinate through out the day, then at bedtime I take 10 mg melatonin and Sleep Thru by Gaia. I sleep well now.

Sometimes I take a dose of night time cold medicine just before going to bed and that does the trick.

Sugar pills are amazing. They naturally enhanced my maleness and cured my headaches.

@gorillapaws Aaaak! I’m allergic to sugar! Sugar pills might work for your headaches, etc., but I bet they wouldn’t help ya sleep! I sure know they wouldn’t help me!

Honestly? ¼–½ a Xanax gives me a deeply restful, sleep that helps me wake up feeling refreshed and functional. I’ve never found any issues with feeling dependent on because I take half the recommended dose and only use it when I REALLY need it.

If you’re looking for a “natural” solution, DoTerra’s highly concentrated lavender oil on my temples and some Binaural Beats “deep sleep” music on YouTube is pure bliss.

I’ve heard people say they take a Tylenol PM and it works for them. I never tried it but I might consider it. I’d say half the nights I wake up around 4 and then get back to sleep around 6, which ends up making me late for work because six is the time I should be waking up.

I usually just watch something on YouTube like the oddly satisfying videos. Also, I would watch a movie that I kinda want to watch, but not really. That usually is what helps me.
