I use Tylenol Simply Sleep on the rare basis that I just can't fall asleep.  I like that it is a small caplet, making it easy to swallow.  But what I like best about it is that is just simply sleep medication.  I used to take Advil PM but frequently did not have any pain that required treating with ibuprofen.  With Tylenol Simply Sleep I am able to just get the sleep medicine I want.

Another positive about Tylenol Simply Sleep is that when you wake up in the morning, you don't get that groggy/medicine feel. You feel well rested and ready for the day.  This does require however that you take it early enough so you are able to get a decent amount of sleep. If you only sleep for a few hours, I have found that you don't wake up as clear-headed as when you are able to get at least six hours of sleep in.  Also, it can take the pill a little while to kick in, which when you want to go to sleep immediately can be a little frustrating.

With that said,I have been using Tylenol Simply Sleep for years and have no plans to switch as it is a good product.

Have been having sleep issues for the past month. Think the sleep issue is due to my broken wrist in a cast.  Prior to the broken wrist I hardly ever had sleep issues, falling asleep within minutes of going to bed and sleeping through the night. Did a bit of research on sleep aids on the internet and based on that bought Tylenol Simply Sleep hoping it would help me sleep thru the night.  Liked that the product was fromTylenol as I trust their otc pain relief.  Tablets are blister packaged by the recommended dosage (2 tablets).  Due to my injury, I had difficulty opening the packaging.  First night I tried just one tablet but still had issues falling asleep and then staying asleep.  I noticed no improvement to my sleep.  The second night I took the full dosage of two tablets.  Yet again I had issues falling asleep and then remaining asleep once I fell asleep.  Because of the 2 nights of trying the product without results, I cannot recommend this product.

Good for a nap.

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

The Tylenol Simply Sleep tablets work okay. They are cheaper than some of the other sleep aids on the market, but aren't that great at great at keeping you asleep. I am able to dose off within thirty minutes of taking these tablets, but unfortunately never end up staying asleep for too long. These are good for a nap, but not for a full night's rest. I didn't notice any side effects while taking these tablets.

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

Simply Sleep didnt make me tired at all! If anything it kept me awake longer! The first night I tried it my boyfriend said that I tossed and turned and twitched all night. The second night I tried a half dose thinking that maybe two pills was too much for me. I was awake almost all night trying to get comfortable and in a position where I wouldnt twitch. I do not recommend this product.

Simply wonderful.

By 

from Weymouth, MA

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

During the summer in between my school years I usually have a hard time falling asleep because I don't have a set schedule anymore. Simply Sleep allowed me to fall asleep quick and to get a full night sleep. Instead of sleeping at four in the morning and waking up around noon, I can now sleep around eleven and wake up around six. It helps me get back into the regular cycle of things. A word of caution, even though that this is an over the counter drug it is easy to abuse this. I only use this once or twice a month and sometimes I only take half a pill and it works. the more frequent the use the more you need in order to fall asleep. Overall I would recommend this to people who just need a good sleep now and then, someone who is suffering from jet lag for example. If you need something that put to sleep every night, go to a doctor and ask them about it. There are coupons for this product online.

Tylenol Simply sleep does what it says but...

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

They have given me one very strange side effect.  I usually take them a couple of hours before bedtime even though i become sleepy within an hour ( i tend to fight sleep) and once i feel drowsy i get a very strong craving for sweets.  More specifically cake like treats, muffins, brownies not usually candy or fruit juices. It has happened every time i have taken simply sleep.  Its really irritating if i dont have anything to cure that craving but i go to sleep eventually so i guess it does its job.  I'm sure that its the main ingredient diphenhydramine that causes this problem because i've taken a couple of generic versions with that same ingredient and had the same side effects.

Overall i it does a good job at putting me to sleep as long as i take it a bit early.

Tylenol Simply Sleep puts me to sleep every night.

By 

from Keller, TX

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

I am so glad I found Tylenol Simply Sleep in my local grocery store.  I don't use it every night, just for nights I need a good sleep.  I fall asleep very easy now and have a good nights rest.  It also leaves me feeling very refreshed in the morning.  I first heard about this product from my brother.  He's been taking them for about a year now.  I just started taking them a couple months ago.  It helps me sleep throughout the night without waking up, and always in a great mood the following morning.  One pill is all it takes.  They make me really tired and I can fall asleep right away.  No more laying in bed for hours worrying about things and trying to fall asleep.  As soon as I lay down, I get tired.  This is a great product for people with a lot of day to day stress and if you have trouble with insomnia.  I will continue to use this product.  This pill is small and easy to swallow.  It is gentle on the stomach as well.

Tylenol Simply Sleep gives you zzzzz's!

By 

from Atlanta, GA

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

When I need sleep, I want to really sleep.  There are many nights after busy days as a mom where I just can not turn off my mind.  I used to be a dedicated user of Tylenol PM, but did not feel right taking it all the time when I didn't have any "pain" for it to be relieving.  I was so pleased to see Tylenol SImply Sleep nighttime sleeping aid on the shelf.  Now I can get to sleep without the unnecessary medicine that I didn't need.  It contains the Diphenhydramine HCI to help you fall asleep.  I have found it to be as effective as some prescription medicines I have tried.  They claim it is safe and non-habit forming.  On the box they tout that the OTC sleep ingredient is "Pharmacist Preferred."  I only use it once every week or two and have had no problems.  I wake up feeling refreshed and rested.  I never feel groggy or in that medicine haze like some sleep aid products will give you.  It is reasonably priced and very effective.

Great non habit forming sleep aid

By 

from Hawthorne, NJ

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

I tried Tylenol Simply sleep when I was on vacation with my parents and boyfriend and they all snore loudly. Normally I try to just wear earplugs and deal with it but I end up awake and exhausted the next day. Instead of tormenting myself and not sleeping I tried Simply Sleep and it worked great.  I took them and within an hour or two I was tired, fell asleep and stayed asleep all night.  I was worried I would wake up really groggy but I woke up refreshed and ready to go.  I didn't become addicted to it and use it when I have to get up really early the next morning and I have to go to bed super early. I absolutely recommend this product to anyone who needs help falling or staying asleep.  If I can stay asleep next to three very loud snorers then anyone can stay asleep.

Simply Sleep good for occasional sleep disturbances

By 

from Woodleaf, NC

Comments about Tylenol Simply Sleep:

I use Tylenol Simply Sleep from time to time when I need help getting rest.  I will say to start with that I never use this product on a regular basis. If you are having trouble sleeping see your doctor immediately because it could be signs of a more serious medical condition.  I use Simply Sleep mainly to get myself back on track with my sleep.  I am a teacher and after long breaks I find myself having trouble getting back in my routine sleep patterns.  In order to remedy this problem I use Simply Sleep a night or two before I head back to the classroom just so I feel refreshed and ready to go the next morning.  Simply sleep works fairly well.  It does help me get to sleep faster but not immediately as  of the commercials would lead you to believe.  I have never used this product for a prolonged period of time so I can not attest to its effectiveness in these cases.  I do not think this product is intended for anything major however so as I mentioned earlier please see a doctor if you have a persistent sleep problem. If you need something occasionally like I do then this is a decent product to have in your medicine cabinet.
