Sam93 Posted September 16, 2013 Report Share Posted September 16, 2013 Hey everyone Well, one of my biggest problems is falling asleep, it always has been pre-hppd and the problem has increased by orders of magnitude post-hppd. I was looking through some OTC sleeping pills and found Doxylamine, which is an anti histamine with supposedly powerful hypnotic properties. I looked on the Wikipedia page and read some reviews and it would appear it is one of the strongest sedatives available OTC, and studies have shown it to be as effective as Phenobarbital, sounds good in theory and certainly preferable to Z drugs and such, however I can't say I've ever used an antihistamine as a sleeping aid so would there be any problems with this in us HPPD'ers? Based on reviews by users it states that it knocks you flat out which sounds great, and has been deemed more effective than prescription hypnotics in a few reviews I've read. It is also extremely cheap at £10 for 192 tablets. Any thoughts? Cheers! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
