    Hi guys,

    Could you please recommend a natural sleeping aid, or any other which is available over the counter?

    I've been using so far Nytol, which works like a charm - but unfortunately wears off after some weeks.

    So, if you know of any other brand which has helped you, please let me know. :thumbsup:

    Many thanks.

    Hi Kat0465

    Thank you for the tip regarding SleepMD. Much appreciated.
    (The main ingredient is a hormone though, which I'm a bit cautious to take over a longer period.)

    So any further tips for natural sleep aids would be greatly appreciated. :Retro smile:

    Magnesium, l-theanine, 5htp, melatonin, Seditol (herbal preparation), kavinace, seriphos. It kind of depends on what your sleep issues are. A cocktail will likely be more effective than one thing.

    Have you had a sleep study done? You might be surprised at what shows up.

    What Caledonia said. :)

    1-3 milligrams of melatonin knocks me out within an hour or so...gives me pretty deep sleep too. Wake up feeling like...well, you know, but I'd probably feel worse if i didn't get any sleep. Also seriphos has been helpful, but has more of a subtle gradual influence.
