Re: Non-prescription sleep aid.
In most countries there are only two non prescription sleep aids, diphenhydramine and doxylamine
These are both sedating antihistamines in the ethanolamine class 9that is, they are both similar drugs), the main difference is that doxylamine is somewhat longer acting, so it will keep you asleep longer, but is also more prone to make you groggy the next day.
I would try diphenhydramine, 50mg at bedtime (brandnames include Sominex, Nytol, Unisom Sleepgels)
