Recently I received a free product sample (provided by the great folks at Influenster for review purposes) of ZzzQuil, which is a nighttime sleep-aid made by Vicks. I’ve never used a sleeping pill before, I’m weary of them despite their “non-habit forming” label. I don’t have horrible sleep issues, but sometimes I have trouble falling back asleep if my cat wakes me up in the early AM. I was curious to give this sample a try, so I picked a night to go to sleep extra early (10PM) and took the 2 LiquiCaps.
It might have taken more than 20 minutes to fall asleep, but it was fairly quick. I slept soundly, but my cat still managed to wake me up at 6AM as usual. I fell back asleep, but when I finally got up I felt very groggy and crouchy. I don’t know if that’s just my personal reaction to a sleeping pill, since I’m not used to taking them… but honestly, I probably wouldn’t use this again unless I was really suffering from insomnia. I didn’t like the grogginess in the morning at all. I’d rather wake up feeling tired!
However, if you find that sleeping pills are effective for you (which is fine – everyone is different!!) then this might be a good option. It certainly did knock me out when I took the pills, so if falling asleep is your problem then ZzzQuil is worth consideration.
Try ZzzQuil if you are a cosplayer suffering from post-con sickness! If you haven’t slept in 3 days, then it might be helpful to take a sleep aid to catch up on some Zzz’s lol!
