    Long-term use of Diphenhydramine

    I've had insomnia for years now and end up taking 25mg of Diphenhydramine (the active ingredient in Benadryl, ZzzQuil, and other over-the-counter sleep aids) most nights. I don't have any real side effects, and nothing I've read about the drug indicates that this kind of use would cause health problems, but I do wonder whether it might be affecting my liver--or my health in other ways. Does anyone know?

    Trouble sleeping?

    Hello, apologies for a long post. So about roughly 3 weeks ago one night I suddenly had trouble sleeping, it took me a long while to fall asleep and I ending up overthinking this and then thinking something wrong was with me. Since that night for a week afterwards I was extremely nervous to go to bed and was anxious in bed in case I struggled again to fall asleep which some nights I did. Once I get into bed too I don't feel like I want to go to sleep? After this I decided to cut caffeine out....
  • Half asleep Half awake

    I'm really struggling with my sleep. Sometimes after a long day or just out of the blue, while I'm falling asleep or I believe I've fallen asleep, I wake up (I'm not even sure if I'm awake, I only remember these things in the morning) and think someone is in the room with me, so I usually sit up, it's not a scary experience like sleep paralysis because usually I think my friends are in my room, but the problem is I want to go sleep, but my brain thinks it's doing something....

    online support for breaking bad sleep habits

    I'm one of those folks with a long circadian cycle, probably 26-27 hours. I've struggled my entire life (now in my 60s) to squeeze myself into a 24-hour cycle, with varying success and failure. I try force myself to retire at an hour that will enable me to get up in the morning when I need to, but it is never easy. In the past, I have found it easier when someone holds me accountable. Right now, it's a counselor, but that gets pricey. Perhaps there are others out there with the same problem....
