Strongest Sleeping Pills you can Buy Over the Counter

I suffer with depression and I get easily stressed out and I am unable to sleep at night (I have a spastic colon and irritable bowel syndrome). I have tried AROPAX & NUZAK but they do not help. I am taking St.John's Wort and BeCalm now but it is not strong enough. The St.John's Wort seems to be working but I need something to calm me down and something to make me sleep(to stay asleep). I need the strongest over the counter sleeping pill and over the counter tranquiliser. I was on Zolpidem but it makes me hallucinate. I am tired all day as well, I can only cope for a few hours a day. Please could you help me as my doctor doesn't seem too interested in what I am saying. Thanking you kindly. Karen.

Hallo Karen
You are very much under-treated at the moment - there are may other different kinds of antidepressants that may work better than Aropax. As soon as you depression is properly treated the sleeping problem and tiredness will also get much better. Ask your doctor to refer you to a psychiatrist - they are specialists with these type of medications and will be able to help you better than a GP ! The over the counter drugs are not going to be good enough and may even make you sicker.

I recently just found out that my partner of 10 years has a 1 year old baby with a woman he had a one night stand with. I have been having sleepless nights and crying for almost 5 weeks now. To top it all i just got mugged last night and i seem to be dealing with all sorts of feelings at the same time. I would like to know if its possible for me to buy OTC sleeping tablets that can help with my sleep and calm me down. Am even losing concentration at work.

Research shows that using your smartphone or tablet in the evening/night totally disrupts your body's natural day-night sleep cycle (circadian rhythm). This is due to the light of the device affecting the pineal gland in your brain. Start to turn down all lights early in the evening, and rather read a book or magazine if you can't sleep. Your bedside lamp should not be bright; preferably a soft, 'warm' light. To re-establish the circadian rhythm, try to open your curtains as soon as the sun comes up and get as much sunlight into your bedroom as possible. Good luck!

Try phenergan 25mg - antihistamine. It helps you sleep but moreover helps to keep you asleep especially at the weekend when you don't have to get up.
