Sominex makes me feel heavy and drowsy, but it usually works.


from Layton, UT

Comments about Smithkline Beecham Sominex Single Dose Maximum Strength Caplets 16:

I've suffered from insomnia for as long as I can remember.  I've tried multiple sleep aids in hopes to find relief.  Compared to prescription-strength sleep-aids, Sominex is quite different as is to be expected.  It usually makes me feel pretty drowsy, which does help me fall asleep.  But I found that after I used it for about a week or two it lost some of its effectiveness.  The little purple  box comes with four sheets of foil packets including 4 pills per sheet.  Only 1 pill is needed at a time, so this box will last you a little over 2 weeks if using it every night.  The effect Sominex has on me reminds me of when I take a cold medicine like NyQuil.  I just feel drowsy and heavy, and like I can't really do anything so I'm therefore forced to go to sleep (even if I'm not quite ready!).  So that's one thing I like better about prescription sleep aids compared to Diphenhydramine sleep aids.  I never know exactly when a sleep aid's effects will kick in, so when they do kick in in the middle of late-night homework or a favorite tv show, I like to be able to finish it before going to bed!  So anyway for the most part, Sominex does it's job.  It can lose it's effectiveness after a little while, but if using occasionally that shouldn't be a problem.
