What is Nytol One-A-Night and when is it used?

This medicine is an antihistamine used to help you relax and fall asleep, it reduces alertness and promotes that first drowsy stage of sleep, helping you to then drift off into a restful, deeper sleep.

It is used when you are wanting to promote drowsiness, this medicine is designed as a sleep aid and is used when you are struggling to get a to sleep, or a good night’s sleep.


How will it treat my symptoms

Nytol One-A-Night works by blocking the normal actions of histamine, the chemical that stimulates arousal-promoting areas of the brain. In sleep problems, this medicine has been shown to help patients fall asleep faster and have a deeper sleep.

Do not take Nytol for longer than 2 weeks without consulting your doctor.


Can I buy Nytol One-A-Night Over the Counter?

You can buy certain pack sizes and doses over the counter in the UK. You don’t need a prescription to buy this dose, but a pharmacist will need to ensure the treatment is suitable and safe for you.

Anxiety, stress, and depression are some of the most common causes of insomnia. Having difficulty sleeping can also make anxiety, stress, and depression symptoms worse.

Insomnia can be triggered by underlying health conditions, and alcohol or drug use.

  • Stress and anxiety
  • Poor sleep routine and sleeping environment
  • Lifestyle factors
  • Mental health conditions

  • Medication


Does Nytol cause any side effects?

Other more serious side effects are listed in the patient information leaflet with this treatment. If you experience any of these, contact your doctor.


What is the recommended dosage of this treatment?

Some over the counter medicines are only allowed to be sold under the supervision of a pharmacist. Nytol is one of these medicines.

Just like when you buy this medicine in a high street or local pharmacy, the pharmacist will need to ask you a few questions. This is a legal requirement for selling this type of medicine.

You may not always realise when your local pharmacist asks you the required questions, as this can sometimes be done subtly. When sold online, we need to make sure our pharmacists have all the information they need to ensure this treatment is right for you.

To buy this treatment, simply fill in the short questionnaire and add the product to cart. Then proceed to checkout.
