If you struggle with getting good sleep at night, you’re probably no stranger to the large amounts of sleep products that are available on the market. It’s hard to know which actually works, and which you should be avoiding. There are over-the-counter antihistamines that are commonly used for sleep, prescription sleep medications, gummies, CBD, and various supplements that are available. The dosage is another thing you often have to worry about, as everyone’s bodies metabolize things at a different rate. How do you know which is right for you?

Over-The-Counter Antihistamines 

Most over-the-counter sleep medications are usually nothing more than repackaged antihistamines. While these are often medications used to help with allergies, they also produce a drowsiness that can help you get to sleep quicker. Most physicians claim there is nothing wrong with taking these medications to get to sleep, but they say that you are most likely not going to get a good quality night’s sleep with them. They often induce morning grogginess, feelings of agitation, and sometimes people can even experience sleepwalking with over-the-counter- antihistamines. 

Prescription Sleep Medications

Prescription sleep medications are usually prescribed if you are dealing with a more serious sleep disorder, such as insomnia. These can be very helpful for short-term use in treating sleep disorders, but they also come with a high risk of dependence. These are usually used as a last resort if other, less severe, sleep medications don’t work well for you. 


According to The Sleep Foundation, cannabinoid, commonly referred to as CBD, can be legally sold in the U.S. when extracted from hemp and marketed according to the relevant regulations. CBD does not have psychoactive properties, so you do not feel the “high” effect from it. Also, CBD does not have any side effects that would lead to potential dependency or risk of abuse when used. CBD naturally gives a calming effect on people and their nervous system, so it is commonly used to help with sleep. However, many studies of CBD are still underway, so it is unclear if it actually helps to get better sleep at night.


Supplements are often an alternative to medication. There are multiple supplements that are used to promote better sleep, and melatonin is by far the most popular. Melatonin is a sleep-promoting hormone that is produced while you sleep. This natural hormone is key to any effective natural sleep formula. GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) is another supplement that aids in sleep. GABA is a known neurotransmitter that relieves stress and anxiety. It works to lessen a nerve cell’s ability to create, receive, or send chemical messages to other nerve cells. In other words, it helps you to get a good night’s sleep, relax, and wind down. Another popular sleep supplement is Magnesium. Magnesium is a nutrient that is involved in muscle and nerve function, and it helps to regulate blood pressure and blood sugar. It can also help regulate neurotransmitters that are directly related to sleep. Magnesium has many sleep-enhancing benefits such as improving your quality of sleep, making it easier to fall asleep, and reducing symptoms of restless legs syndrome, which is commonly known to interrupt sleep.

How Everyones Body Metabolizes Differently

It’s important to note that while products may have recommended dosages, everyone’s body will ultimately metabolize differently. According to OCRC, when the human body begins to metabolize a medication, different organs process the ingredients before they are finally released in the bloodstream. While the process may sound straightforward, drugs dissolve at different rates while formulas and dosages break down differently – and everybody’s body metabolizes medication uniquely. Even though a recommended dosage might be two, you may need three, or just one, to work for you. When it comes to medications, everyone needs to see for themselves how their bodies will react, and how much they should be taking.
