DG Health Sleep Aid Overview
It’s not unusual to have a little trouble falling asleep occasionally.
In fact, the problem is so pervasive there are probably hundreds of home remedies passed down from generation to generation over hundreds and even thousands of years.
From warm milk to hot water bottles, from counting sheep to turning on a fan, everybody’s got some advice for you if you’re having trouble sleeping. Some work sometimes. Some work never.
But there comes a time when you just want everyone to shut up so you can just take a pill and drift off to dreamland.
DG Health Sleep Aid is cheap and available at the Dollar General. But does it work?
We took a look and we’ll let you know what we found out.
DG Health Sleep Aid Ingredients and How They Work
The chief active ingredient in DG Health Sleep Aid is 25mg of Diphenhydramine HCl .
Basically, it’s an antihistimine like you’d find in the Benadryl you use to fight allergy symptoms.
It’s also very similar to the motion sickness ingredient in Dramamine, and it’s used in some treatments for Parkinson’s Disease.
In addition to its other uses, Diphenhydramine HCl is used in DG Health Sleep Aid and other over-the-counter sleep aid formulas for occasional use at bed time when needed.
The recommended dose for adults and children over 12 is 2 caplets.
DG Health Sleep Aid Side Effects
The dose is relatively low, so side effects are mild.
Of course, they include sleepiness, but that’s what you’re looking for. It may also cause slight dizziness .
Because of its tendency to cause drowsiness, you won’t want to drink alcohol, drive, or operate machinery while taking DG Health Sleep Aid.
