All the pills for sleeping aids create "brain chaos" and that's what makes them work. This prevents you from getting a good REM sleep mode and that's what you need to recharge your adrenals and provide high quality sleep. Most sleep problems can be solved easily by changing your diet, by increasing your fats and decreasing your carbs and sugars you eat. Sleeping in an absolutely dark room is essential because your pineal gland will not convert serratonin into melanin if you don't and you need that to sleep well. Eating high carbs and sugar causes blood sugar level problems and that will definitely keep you awake at night. Avoid all sugar and caffeine products. EDIT: DO NOT TAKE THE ADVICE OF the person telling you to take Excedrin PM. You are playing with fire by taking a drug like Excedrin PM. A recent study shows clearly that they damage the body for the long term. Excedrin PM is one specific one that has been named as a BAD GUY. Drugs commonly taken for a variety of common medical conditions negatively affect your brain, causing long term cognitive impairment. These drugs, called anticholinergics, block acetylcholine, a nervous system neurotransmitter. They include such common over-the-counter brands as Benadryl, Dramamine, Excedrin PM, Nytol, Sominex, Tylenol PM, and Unisom. Other anticholinergic drugs, such as Paxil, Detrol, Demerol and Elavil are available only by prescription. Physorg July 13, 2010 reports: "Researchers ... conducted a six-year observational study, evaluating 1,652 Indianapolis area African-Americans over the age of 70 who had normal cognitive function when the study began. Taking one anticholinergic significantly increased an individual's risk of developing mild cognitive impairment and taking two of these drugs doubled this risk.'" good luck to you

I have alot of problems sleeping too but I don't like having pills. The best thing that works for me is a cup of hot chocolate half an hour before bed. It settles you and makes you feel cosy for some reason. Hope this helps :)

Never took sleeping pills. Chamomile tea and honey always work for me. Sometimes just a spoonful of honey will do it.

Gabriel Originally Answered: Are there any over the counter diet pills that make a drug test come back positive?
OTC diet pills from reputable companies shouldn't turn a drug screen positive. The only real OTC diet pill is "Alli," which makes you absorb less fat (and gives you rather greasy stool). This won't turn a drug test positive. Other "diet pills" are not regulated, and honestly companies can put mostly whatever crap they want in those things. Worse, would be things you can get online. They are mostly a combination of caffeine and other stimulants--and I wouldn't be surprised if you found crystal meth or any other amphetamines in some of those snake oil diet pills. That could turn a drug test positive.
