either I was too sleepy or I could not sleep at all. Had agitation and restlessness on 3rd night. Read label and discovered the medication was same as Benadryl and I could have saved myself the misery ( and money) because I had had same experience when I had taken Benadryl for allergies.

Comment:
I have trouble sleeping and I remember sleeping well after taking NyQuil when I was sick. So I tried ZzzQuil. I took the instructed two pills an hour before bed but by the time I got into bed, I was drowsy and uncomfortable. I was fidgety and I felt like my body was trying to get out of my skin.
