Nytol Original 25mg and its sister brand, Nytol One-A-Night, are clinically proven night-time sleep aids. The two brands differ only number of tablets you take; two for Nytol Original and one for Nytol One-A-Night.
Both medications use a common antihistamine to provide temporary relief for sleeplessness, helping you drift off into your regular sleep rhythm.
If you are have trouble sleeping at night, just two Nytol Easy-Swallow Caplets may be what you need to all into a deep, restful sleep. This easy to swallow, over-the-counter sleep aid from Nytol won't leave you feeling groggy the next morning.
The caplets contain Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride, a sedative that helps patients drift off to sleep naturally and feel refreshed in the morning.
Unlike traditional sleeping pills, Nytol’s sleep aid ensures that you don’t feel light-headed when you wake up in the morning.
This medication contains a host of natural ingredients and will enable you to enter into a natural sleep rhythm.
An older generation antihistamine which causes significant drowsiness, Nytol caplets should be taken 20 minutes before bed. It blocks the normal actions of histamine, the chemical that stimulates arousal-promoting areas of the brain. This reduces alertness and promotes the first drowsy stage of sleep. After entering this stage, most people naturally fall into a deeper sleep.
Whether you regularly struggle for some shut-eye or experience only occasional insomnia, you don't need to suffer endless sleepless nights before you consider a sleep aid.
Nytol Original is designed to help relieve sleep disruption and ease you into sleep without drowsy aftereffects. Nytol has been clinically tested and can be purchased over-the-counter.
Sleep can be disrupted by caffeine, a hectic work schedule, and family and money troubles, overuse of technology, jet lag and snoring.
Adequate rest, however, is essential to physical and mental well-being and helps boost the immune system, increase our metabolism, rejuvenate our skin, and support brain function.
While it's not always easy to switch off, knowing how much sleep you need can make a big difference.
It's not all about 8 hours
Everyone has different sleep needs so you needn’t stress about getting a perfect 8 hours every night. However, you shouldn't expect to run on 4 hours a night long-term. If you regularly wake up tired or need to catch up at the weekend, then you need to improve your sleep-quality throughout the week.
Recognising that you don't need to suffer endless sleepless nights before doing something about it is key.
You might have already tried relaxation techniques to improve your sleep. From keeping your room cool to taking a hot bath before bed, there are many ways to unwind. If you can't sleep, it's worth finding some approaches that work for you and incorporating them into your night time routine.

Nytol One-A-Night and Original caplets provide temporary sleeping aid when experiencing sleeping difficulties.
The active ingredient of Nytol One-A-Night caplets is the sedating antihistamine diphenhydramine. Once this chemical reaches the brain, it allows you to fall asleep faster and encourages a deeper sleep. This means Nytol One-A-Night caplets are an effective method for dealing with temporary sleeping difficulties. For best results, take a Nytol One-A-Night caplet twenty minutes before going to bed.
If taken alongside any of the following medicines which cause drowsiness, there may be increased effects of drowsiness:
If this medicine is taken alongside monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), such as trancylcypromine, isocarboxazid, or phenelzine, there may be an increase in the side effects of blurred vision, drowsiness and a dry mouth.
Because the herbal formulations tackle factors such as stress and anxiety, herbal formulations may treat insomnia in some patients better than others.
Everyone has different sleep needs; some people require eight hours while others need only four. However, if you wake up frequently or find it difficult to wind down, Nytol can give you a fuller night’s sleep and will help you feel refreshed and ready to go the next day.
On the occasions when you can’t sleep, Nytol is the ideal way to get back into a healthy sleeping routine and enjoy some rest.
The best treatment for you will depend on your body and the causes of your insomnia. Whereas the conventional formula simply induces drowsiness, the herbal formulae tackle underlying stress and anxiety. The conventional Nytol formula should only be used in the short term, whereas the Nytol Herbal formula is more suitable for use in the long term.
Some plants such as valerian, hops, wild lettuce and passiflora are well-known for their sedative properties.
