    Not really sure what to think. The first night I picked it up I took the reccomended 2 capsules and was out like a light in no time. I slept from 11pm to 3pm and felt like I was in a horrible haze all the next day. Second day took me a bit longer to fall asleep and was feeling a bit restless and again way over-slept and felt groggy. Now it's 7am after the 3rd try and I have not gotten a min ...

    I tend to have really bad experiences with things like Nyquil and Benadryl with whatever is in them (they wind me up more than calm me down) but whatever the makeup of Zzzquil, it totally works for me. I don't feel groggy the next day and it helps me fall asleep and stay asleep. The only downside is that my insomnia can last up two a couple of weeks at a time and after a certain point, maybe 5 ...

    Has no one on this site realized that the main ingredient in this is also the main ingredient in Benadryl??? It will make you sleepy but you can buy off brand benadryl at The Dollar Tree for $1....and it's the same thing just much cheaper. If you don't have a dollar tree then even walmart has a very cheap version of benadryl. zzzquil is expensive in comparison. Start reading the back of th ... Show Full Comment

    I tried zzzquil once before and didn't care for the results. Gave it some time and now I'm trying it again. It just does not work. Normally once I'm in bed and have TV on for background noise it takes me 2-3 hours before realizing I'm falling asleep and then I turn off the TV. At that point I still could be up for another 30 minutes. I have a habit of waking up when I toss/turn or ... Show Full Comment

    My mind constantly races when I try to go to sleep. Many nights I get by on just 3 or 4 hours of sleep. Decided to try zzzquil. Have taken two tablets each night for the last three nights, each time between 11 and midnight. Has helped at all. In fact, the only effect it has had on me is pins and needles in my feel and legs. Time to discontinue the use.
