What are the Best Sleep Aids and Over the Counter Sleeping Tablets or Pills?

The best sleep aids for Insomnia, Children, Adults and Flights.

You probably have arrived at this page because you are looking for information on the best sleep aids.

You are wondering and asking yourself,

  • Which is best for me?
  • Are the best sleep aids the one's purchased over the counter?
  • Which sleeping tablets or pills should I use?

A lot of people are asking these same question and they are right to be asking. The first question you should be asking though is, "What is the cause of my sleep problems"?

Sometimes using sleeping pills might be the wrong approach. In most cases insomnia is just a symptom of a deeper physical or emotional problem.

Click here to share your own sleeping solutions and favorite sleeping aids with visitors on this page! You can also read what others recommend.

Causes of sleep problems range from bad sleeping habits to wrong dieting to excessive work habits, to health issues, jet lag and emotional problems.

Different problems need different solutions.

This is not to say that sleeping pills are not vital in treating your sleep problems. What I am trying to say is that you need to see a doctor to understand the underlying cause so as to know if swallowing sleep pills will solve the problem.

Having said that, if you feel that sleeping pills is the best solution for you, the next question is which is the best sleeping aid to use?

What is the Best Sleeping Aid?

Sleep Aids can be broadly categorized in to two.

Herbal (Natural) Sleep Aids and Sleeping Pills or drugs.

I have set up 3 pages on herbal sleep aids, over the counter sleep aids and insomnia drugs.

These pages talk about sleep aids and all you need to know.

But I have found out that user experience most times is the best kind of knowledge that can be gained.

You'd be surprise to know that your mattress plays an important role on your sleeping habits. You can discover the best mattress for you with detailed mattress reviews of all the top brands.
