If you’re having trouble sleeping at night – you’re not alone. Approximately 50 to 70 million people suffer from some form of sleep disorder in the United States alone. While there could be countless reasons why a person loses sleep at night, there could be long-term consequences if the underlying cause goes untreated.

In most cases, a simple change in lifestyle is all that’s needed. But sometimes you may need a little help from a sleep aid (or sleeping pill).

That being said, finding the “best” sleep aid depends on what could be causing you to lose sleep in the first place and other ailments that you might be suffering from.

Luckily for you, Cabinet has a few sleep aid options for you.

If you’re looking for a natural sleeping aid, you can try our Melatonin supplements. Or, if you’re looking for something with a little more heft, you can go for our Diphenhydramine Sleep Aid.

We also have something for those may be having a hard time catching some z's due to aches or pains – our Pain Reliever & Nighttime Sleep Aid.

Pain Reliever and Nighttime Sleep Aid

This sleep medicine is a two-in-one: acetaminophen (found in Pain & Fever Relief) and diphenhydramine (found in Allergy Relief). It provides effective relief against minor body aches and pains, while carrying you to a world of slumber.

As highlighted earlier, there are a pleathora of sleep problems and disorders.

Some of the most common ones include:

1. Insomnia – usually a result of stress, jetlag, serious underlying conditions, or even genetics, insomnia is the inability to fall asleep at night. Around 60 million people in the US are affected by insomnia.

2. Sleep Apnea sleep apnea is a potentially serious, yet treatable medical condition where a person may stop breathing in their sleep, causing them to wake up.

3. Narcolepsy – a person with narcolepsy will experience intense daytime sleepiness and occasional episodes where they suddenly fall asleep.

Other common problems that could disrupt your sleep cycle include restless leg syndrome (RLS) and REM sleep behavior disorder.



Looking to normalize your sleep schedule? If you’re currently in the process of fixing your sleep-wake cycle (or circadium rhythm), here are some steps you can take :

1. Avoid taking long naps at odd hours of the day.

2. Save that snooze for later. If you’re feeling too tired, take a 10 to 20-minute power nap.

3. Strive to wake up at the same time every day. This can be challenging at first, but with a good alarm clock and a little discipline, you’ll eventually adjust to a routine.

4. Don’t use electronics at bed time. Put away your smartphone, switch off your TV, and shut down your laptop. The blue light emitted from electronic devices can affect your internal clock.

5. Meditate before bedtime. Deep breathing and other relaxation techniques will help you release any built-up stress.

6. Consider taking a sleeping pill, like Natural Sleep Aid, to help get you adjusted (or re-adjusted) to your desired sleep schedule.

Besides melatonin, other natural remedies that may be effective for sleep include:

1. Valerian Root – this herb has been used for its calming effects since ancient times. It is thought to work by increasing the production of GABA, which is a chemical messenger that produces a calming effect in the body. Valerian root comes in the form of tea and as a herbal supplement.

2. Kava – this is a root that can deliver calming effects. It’s available as both a dietary supplement and tincture. Kava isn’t 100% safe and may cause liver damage. Don’t take it without consulting with your doctor first.

3. Chamomile – a plant, which, when taken in the form of tea, may promote a restful sleep and help decrease anxiety.

4. Purplepassion Flower – this is a perennial vine that can help relieve anxiety and insomnia.

Speak to your doctor or pharmacist before trying any natural remedies, as they can potentially interact with certain medications. Finally, remember not to take any sleep aids with alcohol.
