Over-the-counter (OTC) sleep aids vs Sport Endurance Natural Sleep Aid

Over-the-counter (OTC) sleep aids

The main ingredient of over-the-counter sleeping pills is an antihistamine. Antihistamines are generally taken for allergies. However, histamine, a chemical messenger in the brain, promotes wakefulness, so antihistamine also has the effect of making you feel very sleepy. Some OTC sleep aids also include a pain reliever.   Common OTC sleep medications, with a link to Medline Plus drug information from NIH, include:
•    Diphenhydramine (found in brand names like Nytol, Sominex, Sleepinal, Compoz)
•    Doxylamine (found in brand names like Unisom, Nighttime Sleep Aid)
OTC sleep aids are meant to be used for short term insomnia. Tolerance to the medication, meaning that you need a higher dosage of the medication for it to work, can develop in only a few days.
