A few months ago I became really quite ill. I started off with a really bad throat infection, everytime I ate or drank it felt like my throat was on fire. This then turned into a chest infection. Because I was quite down in the dumps at the same time I just didnt seem to be getting any better and ended up with migranes and was generally in a lot of pain. I was really struggling to get any sleep as it felt like an elephant was tap dancing on my head and chest and feeding me razor blades. Without sleep I was getting worse and worse and so the list went on. I went to the chemist and they suggested that Nytol one-a-night tablets may aide me in getting a good nights rest. They were fine to take with the painkillers and anti-biotics I was already taking and would cause me no danger.
So that night, I put fresh bedding on, had a bath and got into clean jim-jams, no better feeling. I took the one tablet as recommended and waited for the miracle. The tablet was very easy to swallow and left no after taste. I did not take this with food before bed. Should you chose to try these tablets ensure you read the instructions carefully as the packet knows best, this review is just how I found them, I wouldnt like to comment on the guidelines of the product. I found that I did fall to sleep a lot easily and wasnt waking up as much as I had been previously. However, I did still wake you at the crack-of-dawn time I had been.
I felt that the Nytol one-a-night may be more mind over matter, as I have never tried any other type of sleeping tablets I wasnt exactly too sure what to expect. However, with my partner was an entirely different story. He works 7 nights a week and really needs his sleep with working so many hours. A few weeks ago he had become very stressed and had gone without sleep for nearly 2 days, I was really concerned for him as with working so many hours his sleep is very important. He is very anti-tablets. And has never taken them before if not perscribed by a doctor. After quite some time I managed toget him to agree to take a Nytol to see if it helped him. To be honest, he was so tired he didnt put up much of a fight. I think maybe the fact that he chooses not to take tablets or it was just the little push he needed to put his head on the pillow but he literally did not move all night. The position he fell asleep in was the position he woke up in. It was quite comical, he didn't make a sound all night, I found myself losing sleep to check on him. Needless to say, he did wake up feeling better, but being a man would never admit that fact.
Even if these tablets are more mind over matter I found them really quite effective and did the job I needed them to do. They left no groggy feeling in the morning, no non-alcohol hangover. I woke up feeling refreshed and happy I had managed to sleep through the night. I would recommend this product and will use in future if ever needed.
