I don't use sleep aids too often, but there are times when my arthritis flares up and I need something that allows me to get to sleep and stay asleep.

I've tried some other over-the-counter sleep aid combinations, and this one is by far the best of the bunch for me. First, I sleep through the night, waking *maybe* once (not too often). Second -- NO MORNING HANGOVER! I'm not sure why, since most of these OTC sleep aids use the same "active ingredient" for the sleep part (Diphenhydramine Citrate), but for some reason, I get none of that morning grogginess with this product that I've had with others. Maybe it's the caplet form (slower release?). Whatever -- I can take two of these, and know that I'll awake refreshed and ready to go.

As others have mentioned, it does take a little while to work. I'd say allow an hour or so. For me, that's a small inconvenience -- I just have to remember to take it well before I plan to go to sleep.

It seems to work well enough, but it takes a long time to take effect. The problem I've had is that the pain (in my case, arthritis in my knees) is relieved and I can fall asleep, but if I am awakened during the night by a noise or my cat ... or by anything, I cannot fall asleep again. I can fall asleep more easily, but staying asleep is still a problem. This is a little disappointing.

          I use this product after a strenuous day...I exercise regularly and my job is physical... some days are just tough and at the end of the day I am exhausted and sore.
          I take one Advil PM before bedtime and I sleep great and wake up refreshed with no side effects at all.

            Comments about Advil PM Caplets, 80 ea:

            While (daytime) Advil alone doesn't seem to do anything, the Advil PM seems to work great. I have fibromyalgia, which makes trying to sleep feel like being tortured in the Tower of London some nights. And, yet, a good night's sleep is one of the few things that make a fibro sufferer someone who can live an almost-normal daily life. I have an extremely high tolerance for medicine & combine this with another OTC sleep medicine for a sure-fire eight hours of deep sleep at night. And, no, I don't have morning grogginess or a headache upon awakening. Two of these for the average person would be plenty to aid in good sleep.

              Comments about Advil PM Caplets, 80 ea:

              I have fibromyalgia, which makes sleeping without taking any insomnia medication utterly impossible. Sometimes my Rx sleep aid doesn't work. I'll take this instead when I've built up a tolerance to either my Rx or Excedrin PM (which also works well). Rotating keeps me from making one medication completely inefffective & helps me get to sleep & stay asleep pretty easily. This takes approximately 90 to 120 minutes to work for me. I do take it with dinner, though (around 7:30 p.m.), because otherwise sleep meds can make me feel nauseous, shaky & dizzy. I don't get so drowsy that my eyelids are drooping- my body & mind just relax enough for me to rest comfortably. I take milk thistle to counteract any long-term effects on my liver from these OTC medicines, I should add, since I have to take them on a regular basis. I don't notice any morning grogginess, but then I am a full-figured woman & have an extremely high tolerance for medication. I've also not had any rebound headaches the next morning from using this at night, another important thing to me.

              Comments about Advil PM Caplets, 80 ea:

              This stuff works....but take products about 30-60 minutes prior to when you need to be asleep. Two really makes you feel groggy in the morning and I suggest using two if you plan on sleeping in the next day and do not have to get up early. I just have a cup of coffee to get me going again but you do feel it.

              Also, set the tone for sleep, don't try to fight it if you want to sleep....read a bit in bed or watch tv in bed. Don't just take pills and then go on computer.

              I love it and need it!
