Sleeping pills and grogginess

Sleeping pills and grogginess

I sometimes take something to help me sleep. This is not a common thing, but if I need to get to sleep they do work for me.

The problem I have with the over the counter sleep medications is that they can leave me groggy the next day. I mean day, not just in the morning. If I am able to get some cardio in the morning, the grogginess clears, but if I am taking something to help me sleep, I probably have something important to do in the morning.

Taking the pills earlier will make me fall asleep earlier, but I will still be groggy. I am wondering if half a pill might help or whether it would be too small a dose to get me to sleep.

RE: Sleeping pills and grogginess

The pills cause grogginess for me too and only take them when I have to. Half a pill often works for me but not always. My problem is different though because I often wake up in the early morning and taking anything at that point can mess up the day. That said, the good thing with taking half a pill is that if it is still not working after 40 minutes, you can take the other half to get the desired effect. To me, the best thing is actually to go to bed about 2 hours early when I have something important the next day. That way, my only risk is waking up earlier than I would because the effects of the pill have worn off. But, by the time I have to wake up, I am usually clear. You do lose a few hours, but for important things, it is worth the time.

I have taken sleeping pills on and off throughout the year. I noticed that I suffer bouts of insomnia from November until the New Year. However, no matter what I take, I will awake groggy. However, I noticed that if I take Tylenol PM or Motrin PM that I am still groggy. Those pain medications are suppose to have less of the those ingredients.
Does anyone else suffer from those issues?

You can improve sleep issue by eating healthy diet and do regular exercise daily it will help you to reduce your stress. Taking sleeping pills for sleep is not good for health.

I take sleeping pills from time to time. I never take the full recommended amount, which is 2 pills from over the counter packages. I always take 1 pill and it usually helps me sleep throughout the night. I completely agree with you on the fact you do feel groggy the next day, especially if you have a full day of activities ahead of you. I usually try to go asleep around 9:00 PM if I am taking 1 sleeping pill. This typically helps with me getting my full night's rest.

RE: Sleeping pills and grogginess

I'm too afraid to take any sleeping aids because what if I need to get up if the house is on fire and I can't move? I've had medication that made me drowsy and I couldn't move when I needed to and I needed the bathroom and once when I did get up I started to cook something and nearly set myself on fire as I didn't realize my sleeve had caught the stove.

For me it's too dangerous after what I have experienced and the groggy feeling feels as if I have lost control and that's not a great feeling either.

I am on a sleep pill called zopiclone but I have chronic insomnia due to chronic illness. It does not seem to cause grogginess in me but I do not get quality sleep at the best of times so I am a zombie in the morning sleeping pill or not. The best thing really to try is exercise in the mornings and a small dose of melatonin at night. I would try the 3mg dosage of melatonin because apparently the small dose works better than the large doses do at times. For example 5 mgs and 10mgs didn't work for me at all. I assumed it simply was not effective. However I find the 3mg dosage to be helpful. I take it in a fast dissolving strip.

RE: Sleeping pills and grogginess

Don't take too much sleeping pills as taking these pills on excessive amount can be injurious to your health.
