I just saw the commercial for the new Advil PM, saying it lasts longer, and keeps you asleep throughout the night. I have horrible sleeping problems, and until I get to my doctor's appointment and make him listen this time (hopefully) I am stuck with using things like this on the nights I cannot sleep.
Tylenol PM doesn't work that good at all, so I'm wondering if anyone's used the Advil PM and can attest to their advertisement!
advil PM just has half again as much benadryl in it than does tylenol PM, 38mg vs. 25mg. so yes you could sleep more because of more benadryl. you could be more groggy and hungover the next day too, just have to try and see how you do.
Perhaps I will just stick to my arch enemy; liquid nyquil. Darn it's fast-acting properties opposed to it's pill form, I have a special hate for having to drink any kind of syrup/liquid medicines. But since I woke up this morning with a very swollen throat and a more horrible cough than I went to bed with, I don't think I have much of a choice; advil and tylenol don't help me there!
I haven't used Advil PM, but both Tylenol PM and Nyquil put me to sleep, but it's horrible sleep. I sweat like crazy and have bad dreams. A few nights ago my boyfriend had a headache and took meds before bed. I didn't know what he took. In the morning he told me that he had awful sleep, tossed and turned, and was wet with sweat (which I noticed). I asked him if the meds he took that night were "PM" and he said yes.
Unfortunately, my whole post here probably doesn't do you any good because I don't know of a GOOD medicine to help with sleeping!

No problem! It's fairly new, I think? I take, on average, about an hour or so to fall asleep, but I wake up two or three (sometimes more) times in a night. Them, I often wake up before I should, and can't get the extra few minutes I have in to sleep. It's terrible, but my doctor told me that it is because I am bi-polar(?) That, to me, sounds a bit far-fetched, and then my psychiatrist had the audacity to prescribe me to adderall the very first day I met him, then double the dosage a week later. I don't know how they ever expect me to get a decent night's rest with the things they tell me I have.
I have found more and more they are telling people they are bi-polor. I never herd of it untill 2 years ago and now everyone I know is. I think its a little strange. I know a lady who is and she acts like she has diffrent personaltys, its not like im linda, Im maggy its like hello darling do you want a cookie, thats right eat a cookie you fat B.
I'm gonna trade this life for fortune and fame I'd even cut my hair and change my name
