Is it bad to take Nyuil/Advil PM every night?

I mean, I know it's not good for you, but could there be any adverse health effects other than dependency? I take one of the two pretty much every night to go to sleep, unless I've been drinking or smoking, and usually that's enough.

Switch it up and pop a few Benadryl every now and then.

If you're just using them to fall asleep, just take benadryl. Advil PM is just diphenhydramine(active ingredient in benadryl) + ibuprofen.

One would need a prescription for that sort of thing. I'm hesitant to try to get prescribed to anything

Yeah, exactly what I was going to say - they are very close from a chemical standpoint.

Re: Is it bad to take Nyuil/Advil PM every night?

The ibuprofen in Advil can be hard on your stomach and kidneys over time. Especially if you are taking other anti-inflammatory pain relievers for every day aches and pains throughout the day. As for NyQuil..... NyQuil NyQuil NyQuil, I love you, you giant fucking Q!! anyone???

Re: Is it bad to take Nyuil/Advil PM every night?

not really. Advil is a mix of ibuprofen and diphenhydramine (aka benedryl). This shouldnt be confused with tylenol, which has acetaminophen in it, and can hurt your liver in large or extended doses.

Overall, there is a 99% chance you will be fine. I would suggest you see a doctor for a sleeping aid. Dont be afraid of addiction or anything, you wont get a drug that is powerfully addicting or anything close to that if you are trying to replace advil pm.

So to sum it up, it is not bad.

Yea, that's dependency. Maybe you should start to try weening yourself off of these pills for sleep. Try to not use them any night that you don't have to wake up early in the morning, and then start not using them 3, 4, 5, times a week until you get to the point where you no longer need them to fall asleep.

Yeah that's what I do... it takes me forever to fall asleep at night, I think during the week it's hard for me to wind down and I get anxiety before I fall asleep. I usually take a tylenol pm to help me too. I usually sleep fine on the weekends so I haven't gone to a doctor about it yet.

Does anyone know of any other home remedies to help you fall asleep??

Re: Is it bad to take Nyuil/Advil PM every night?

O boy,

Ive had this problem I startted taking Advil PM because I loved how tired it would make me b/c i would definatly have a tough time falling asleep at night otherwise.. problem is is that its not good to have to depend on things to fall asleep.. its a natural thing your body needs to do every night.. i suggest three things: 1. get your body on a schedule.. 2. dont eat sugary or caffenated products before you go to sleep.. and 3. make your bed as comfy as possible.. I have slowly been cutting back my dependency on these types of sleep aids and now I am down to 1 melatonin eveery night, pretty soon I should be able to do it without that stuff

Also, exercising daily will help you fall asleep.

This is the stuff I used to take - Tylenol PM "Sleepy Time" or something. Its basically just a sleep aid without the pain killer.

I hear it'll make your balls literally fall off if you take stuff like that every night for a few months.

How do you think I "decided" to be a chick?
