    Default Sleeping tabs for flights etc

    Appreciate this may be sensitive subject so delete by all means. Have just asked same question on another forum as part of a flight thread
    Anyone have a reliable online source. ?? Not concerned with cost obviously.
    Our own GP practice will issue only 2 tabs of 5mg each for a death in the family and thats it. Am reluctant to change Practices after such a long time since birth lol !

    Rather not have comments of you shouldn't take tabs on flights in case of an emergency. Stand on me I've been on a night time flight whereby an engine imploded and there was not a single person not awake within 2 seconds with the screaming and noise !

    "Sleeping tablets" is a little vague. Could you be more specific?

    You can buy diphenhydramine hydrochloride (qualifies as "sleeping tablets") over the counter at Boots.

    If you're talking about temazepam, or any other drug that's illegal without a prescription then, I'm sorry but, deleted it will be. JFGI.

    Atarax does the job anti histamine, can buy in Thailand at Boots for about 95 baht, generic about 50 baht. mrs just bought some sleeping pills from the USA, same stuff but 5x the price. Better than xanax or valiium. Get 25 mg

    Am not sure I can be more specific lol
    Sleeping tablets are sleeping tablets not antihistamines or whatever

    Antihistamines are sold as sleeping tablets in the USA, the side effect is sleepiness, and they are far more effective than anything else I ever tried. Just looked on the box of sleeping aid pills mrs bought- diphenhydramine as Maokaang said. That the right advice take it or leave it.

    Many frequent flyers swear by melatonin, available over the counter in most countries.

    I can highly recommend this. I used to fly a hell of a lot when I worked in the City. I always used to get them from a pharmacy overseas when I could. Only available on prescription in the UK though.
    If you're offended by any assistance I give, it says far more about you than it does me.

    I work nights and the best sleep ive had and the most refreshed i feel is when ive gone straight to the airport after a nightshift a couple of stellas waiting to board and i was out like a light ,side affect ended up getting some diclofenac for my shoulder after waking up like a ironing board.
    any other form of tablet your going wake up with side affects and could lead to a dependency ,
    unless you splash out on a long haul flight and get a cabin with a bed your going feel crap for a day or two anyway ,

    • zolpidem tartrate 10 mg was prescribed by my physician and I have used this successfully for the past 15 years or so never more than 10 tablets a year, this induces sleep for 5-6 hours and has minimal hangover like symptoms definitely prescription only and not suitable for middle eastern stop overs or flights less than 10 hours

    Don't take 6 Valium and drink a bottle of sangsom when flying back to UK over winter time.. otherwise your flight might get diverted due to snow and you might wake up with no memory of it in a hotel in Copenhagen

    are you in the UK? Kalms range of meds especially Kalms Night can buy in pharmacies and supermarkets and some shops. both are natural herbal remedies. Antihistamines are recommended but not all cause sleepiness. However, NYTOL (Diphenhydramine an antihistamine) also called Benedryl is sold everywhere as an aid for insomnia

    Piriton is the only antihistamine I can think off that makes you sleepy but it's a bit hit and miss.

    Let your body take care of itself. Trying to sleep never works and adding chemicals makes the adjustment worse. The human being is an incredible organism and adapts quickly left to its own devices.

    Never ever would I take sleeping pills for anything. Especially when flying.

    I might have a couple of glasses of red wine but using noise cancelling headphones and I can sleep like a baby without drugs.

    Nytol tablets. Over the counter sleep medication.
    Contains Diphenhydramine which is an antihistamine mainly used to treat allergies. It is also used for insomnia.

    Oops just noticed already mentioned. Sorry, perhaps a MOD could delete for me.

    Listening to in-flight entertainment on low volume works for me.

    Probably for the same reason I disliked it. "Waking up with side effects and could lead to a dependency" nor do I feel "crap for a day or two" Nor does taking Class A drugs seem like a good idea
    My OP clearly was reference flights not taking night after night for months on end

    As regards melatonin asked the GP but in uk its now only on prescription for the over 55's. Am guessing that was lower in the past or didnt exist
    Told me to order online instead 10mg doses he reckoned are worth a try

    some one with a addiction will always be in denial ,,if you want to drop a powder based tablet down your neck then go ahead ,for something that comes natural ,,,and to be honest i couldn't care less if you disliked my post you keep dropping them sleepers
