I tried benadryl and advil pm but both had unpleasant side affects next day. I then tried herbal medicine called Luna which really didn't do much to help. More recently I tried another herbal medicine called Sleep Support which seems to work pretty well. Sometimes I 'll take one of these pills plus one regular advil and it seems to work great. I think there's a lot of people with different sleep issues so it's a matter of trial and error.
