It helps me settle down and relax so the arthritis pain (wife) eases so I can go to sleep. (Husband)I take it to ease pain for neuropathy, and it also helps me to sleep.

Percogesic used to be my favorite EFFECTIVE OTC pain reliever. The original antihistamine ingredient did not give me the creepy-crawly sensation that I always get from Benadryl.
