Try Unisom. its over the counter. its Not habit forming. and in most ppl helps you to fall asleep in about 30 to 45 minutes. and you should plan to have 8 hours of sleep else you can wake up groggy.

I think enam 500 is one of the best sleeping pills which is used by the many people in our society. I saw many doctors prescription who prescribed this pills for sleeping and high blood pressure patients for their better sleeping.

Your best bet is to try Melatonin. It can b found in the vitamin aisle. It is the chemical naturally produced in the brain to induce sleep. This synthetic version can trigger sleep as well. Try a low dose to start and see what you need. And because it is naturally occuring in the human body, you do not get all those nasty side effects!

since im in love with sleeping aids id reccomend staying away from them, but if you really need a quick pass out then try some unisom or lunesta.

Sleeping pills are dangerous.I would recommend trying to synchronise your circadian clock again, spend time outside in the sun, watch it rise/set, for a minimum of 30 seconds per day. Also if your very tired, then sleep for an hour or two before 3pm. If all this does not helpm, then take melatonin or 30mg of 5HTP. This is a safe supplement which is the precursor to serotonin (the feel food nuerotransmitter), at night it is converted to melatonin (a chemical that makes you sleep), so increasing this will help. Also stay in a dark room, no bright lights, and just relax.

My husband uses Sominex, he has a tough time falling to sleep also because he works nights and sleeps all day. He says they work really well for him, he usually doesn't wake up till it's time for him to go to work, you may want to try them.
