Finding it difficult to drop off for a good night’s sleep? Sick of counting sheep (because let’s be honest, that just doesn’t work)? Feeling so crabby in the morning that you scare your coworkers? You need a good Nytol!
When you’re suffering from temporary insomnia and just can’t seem to get those 8 hours of sleep you so desperately need, Nytol sleep aids can help you to drift off for a good nights rest.
Available as sleeping tablets, liquid medicine, and even herbal remedies, this wide range of options means you’ll be sure to find just the thing you need to help you finally get to sleep.
Nytol has even created an anti-snoring spray, for those who find that their sleepless nights are caused by someone who’s sleeping like a baby - it’s better than giving them a shove in the middle of the night!
If your sleepless nights are getting you down, then try Nytol, the UK’s favourite sleep aid brand.
The best Nytol product to ease your short term insomnia will depend entirely on you and your own circumstances.
For example, if you’re looking for a natural remedy for sleepless nights, the Nytol Herbal range will be the ideal choice for you.
If you’ve used sleep aids in the past and are looking for a convenient tablet to take at bedtime, Nytol One-A-Night could be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
If sleeping tablets just aren’t your thing, Nytol Liquid Caramel could be ideal, as it’s easy to swallow and has that delicious caramel flavour.
If you’re ever unsure about which remedy is right for you, we’d recommend asking your doctor or pharmacist so they can discuss the Nytol range with you and help you to choose the perfect treatment for your sleepless nights.
The amount of Nytol you should take will depend on which product you’re taking and the strength of the active ingredient.
You should always take the dose recommended to you by your doctor or pharmacist, or follow the manufacturers instructions included with your treatment.
Here are the doses recommended for some Nytol products, so you can get a better idea of what these remedies would be like for you:
Insomnia just means that you regularly have trouble getting to sleep and staying asleep.
Lots of people have the occasional sleepless night, but if you struggle to get to sleep quite often you could be suffering from insomnia.
Insomnia doesn’t necessarily mean that you’ll be lying there staring at the ceiling all night long, you could get a few hours of sleep but find that you wake up in the night and struggle to get back to sleep.
When your alarm goes off in the morning and you still feel exhausted and stumble through your day like a zombie with a migraine, you know that all of that interrupted sleep has started to catch up with you.
If all of these things sound more familiar than you’d like them too, you could be suffering from insomnia.
You can buy Nytol products online without a prescription.
However, some products, like Nytol Original and Nytol Liquid Caramel, can only be sold over the counter.
This means that you’ll need to answer a few quick questions from our pharmacists before you’ll be able to make your purchase.
It’s a quick and easy process that mirrors the questions you’d be asked if you went into a pharmacy store and bought Nytol there, and when it’s done we’ll get your order finalised and sent out to you ASAP.
The active ingredient in Nytol depends on which product you’re using.
Nytol Original, Nytol One-A-Night, and Nytol Liquid Caramel all contain an active ingredient called diphenhydramine.
This ingredients works by reducing the amount of time it takes for you to fall asleep and helping you to get better quality sleep.
On the other hand, the Nytol Herbal range uses a natural ingredient called valerian root, which is traditionally used to relieve sleep disturbances and promote calm.
Some Nytol Herbal products also contain hop strobile and passion flower, which are also traditionally used to help you relax and fall asleep.
Like all medications, Nytol products can have side effects, although you may not experience them yourself.
Naturally, you’ll probably feel drowsy or sleepy after using these products, as they’re designed to help you fall asleep, but there are other potential side effects too.
For a complete list of potential side effects of Nytol, we’d recommend taking a look at each product’s individual page, which will give you more detailed information about the treatment you want to use.
You’ll also be able to find a link to an up to date patient information leaflet, which is created by the manufacturer to help answer your questions about your medicines.
Having the odd night of inadequate sleep can make you feel tired and a little cranky, but it won’t have a serious impact on your overall health.
However, regularly not achieving a decent amount of sleep can have a huge effect on your health and put you at risk of developing severe medical conditions, as well as having a negative influence on your body, thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
For most people, it is recommended to achieve at least eight hours of good quality sleep to allow us to function at our best, with the importance placed more on the quality rather than the hours of sleep.
If you are waking up tired and spending the day feeling sleepy, chances are you’re not getting the correct amount or a decent quality of sleep which, over time, can have serious implications including:
Just goes to show, waking up on the wrong side of the bed can cause more issues than a grumpy mood!
Nytol products aren’t suitable for children.
If your child is having trouble with sleepless nights or find it difficult to drop off at bedtime, we’d recommend speaking to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
They’ll be able to help recommend some lifestyle changes that could help your kids to fall asleep when bedtime rolls around.
Nytol products are designed to help you get a good nights sleep, and aren’t a remedy for anxiety.
However, Nytol herbal sleeping tablets may help to produce a sense of calm and relaxation when you’re trying to fall asleep, which may be ideal for those who are finding that their sleep is disturbed by racing thoughts and worries.
If you think you may be suffering from anxiety, we’d recommend speaking to your doctor and asking them to recommend a suitable treatment for you, including medications if necessary.
There are 3 kinds of sleep aids available to those who have been recommended them by their doctor; herbal remedies, over the counter medications, and prescription drugs.
These each work slightly differently and contain different ingredients, so let’s take a good look at each one and what they can do to help you to get a few hours sleep.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding then you should not take valerian root medications.
If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding and are struggling to get enough sleep, you should ask your doctor, pharmacist, or health visitor for advice.
