A few weeks back, I received an awesome VoxBox free for testing purposes from Influenster that included a sample of ZzzQuil. I was excited to try it because I often have trouble sleeping (my Mom brain never shuts off- y’all know what I mean!), but I don’t like the prescription sleep aids I’ve taken because they leave me feeling groggy all day the next day.
I took ZzzQuil about 30 minutes before I wanted to go to bed one night. I took the medicine while watching some TV before bed, figuring that once the “Friends” episode I was watching was over, I’d be ready to sleep.
The gelcaps are small, so they’re easy to take and have no taste, so you don’t have to worry about the weird aftertaste you get from some pills. However, it did take longer than 30 minutes for them to kick in for me. After my “Friends” episode went off, I went to bed but I laid there for a good while before I felt sleepy enough to drift off to sleep. However, once I did fall asleep, I slept really well and didn’t wake up multiple times through the night like I normally do. I also felt rested the next morning and didn’t have that groggy feeling I had gotten with other sleep aids.
Overall, I really like ZzzQuil- so much so that I’ve bought myself my own little stash to keep on hand for those nights I need help getting good rest. I don’t need to use it often, but I love that it’s non-habit forming and I can take it several nights in a row if I need to without feeling dependent on it. I would definitely recommend this to others who have trouble sleeping at night. You can get it here from Amazon:
