I don't know what's in nyquil that makes me refreshed in the morning, but I swear it works. My two best "sleeps" were when I took nyquil.

Usually, I wake up really sleep and groggy. It usually takes either coffee or a couple of hours to wake up. When I took nyquil, i wake up with a "sense of energy." Is there something in nyquil that perks you up?

Read the ingredients. I have my sleep remedy in the Alt Med area here.

I highly recommend white sainfoin honey with milk before going to sleep. I tried it when I was in Andorra. I have never seen white honey before, and they have a small local brand "Le Souffle d'Adore".

Initially, I didn't feel anything, just a delicious drink. But then I had my first good sleep in a week. It is difficult to find White Sainfoin Honey in US, and ordering it from Europe is wildly expensive. But you also can try milk with raw rosemary honey. Rosemary honey contains carnosic acid, which is also found in sage and thyme. Rosemary creates an effect similar to valerian root - its scent can be soothing when inhaled before bedtime.

Nyquil has always made me feel like I'm walking through jello the next day. I get a good night's sleep but it leaves me with a type of hangover.

The ingredient you are enjoying is doxylamine succinate, an antihistamine that is also sold OTC as a sleep aid. There is a Kirkland brand sleep aid they sell at costco with that ingredient, so you can enjoy your pharmacologically assisted sleep without all the extra ingredients in nyquil that you don't need.
