The Dip Tip

Fortunately I almost never need any help getting to sleep, although on occasion I do need a little help staying asleep.

If I'm achy from a hard days work, I'll take 1 or 2 (450 mg) Valerian root, it helps to soothe my aches and pains and keep me sleeping as well.

At times though, if I'm anxious or excited about something and can't shut my brain off I'll take my "Dip Tip" which is just the generic over the counter PM medication. This is usually diphenhydramine and acetaminophen. (I think you can get it with ibuprofen instead)

The bottle says to take 2, but I NEVER take 2 as I wake up in a daze. 1/2 a tablet works fine most of the time for me.(sometimes I take 1) They are easy to break in half as the brand I buy are long and skinny.

-it works for me, Jack

You are SO right! I never even thought to try these, always thinking the actual sleeping pills or prescription type would be better and I didn't want to take those.

Thanks for a simple tip!
