Ive always taken diphenhydramine for sleep and it works good. Sometimes i find, however, that it has no effect on me. Its kind of hit or miss. Dip has always been marketed as an OTC hypnotic or sleep aid. Also Doxylamine Succinate is marketed as such and is a common active ingredient in Tylenol Cold and Nyquil.
My questions are...
1) Which do YOU find more useful for a sleep aid, basically which one works better.
2) Im pretty sure i know the answer but is it safe to mix the two for a sleep aid, recently ive taken tylenol cold (Doxylamine Succinate) and tylenol simply sleep (Diphenhydramine HCL) together for sleep aids.
3) Generally i take 50-100mg of Diphenhydramine HCL for a hypnotic, what is a good/equiv dose of Doxylamine Succinate (i believe 6.75mg comes in nyquil per 15ml dose and 25mg single dose as an isolated drug sold per hypnotic (ie Restavit)
Taking ~60ml of nyquil has always knocked me out what do you think???
