ZzzQuil – Night Time Sleep Aid

A lot of medical studies have already pointed out that certain factors affect the quality of sleep. This will include, fatigue, emotional and mental stress, age, anxiety among other things.

Many sleep aid supplements have their unique formulation from natural components to herbal infused products. But there is one product in the market that aims to deliver an effective remedy for occasional sleeplessness while reducing the amount of time to fall asleep and this is ZzzQuil Nighttime Sleep Aid by Vicks Nyquil.

What Is ZzzQuil?

ZzzQuil Nighttime Sleep Aid comes from the manufacturing company Vicks Nyquil and has been out on the market for several years now. It comes in two forms liquid and LiquiCaps.

The ZzzQuil Nighttime Sleep-Aid Liquid Warming Berry comes in two bottle sizes 6 and 12 fluid ounces and has a very sweet warm berry taste formulated with alcohol content while the ZzzQuil Liquicaps is a liquid capsulized pill that has the same components as the ZzzQuil Liquid. This sleep aid comes in a formulation that is non-habit forming that promises to provide relief for occasional inability to sleep.

How Does ZzzQuil Work?

The active ingredient in both ZzzQuil liquid capsule and liquid is Diphenhydramine HCl 25 mg which is very effective in deactivating alertness that can put the mind and body at ease and at rest promoting sleepiness. Our body naturally produces histamine that is a substance that transmits a message directly to the brain telling the body to remain awake and alert.

The main function of Diphenhydramine HCl is to act as an antihistamine, blocking and switching off mental alertness making one feel relax and drowsy in the process.

Clinical studies proved that this active substance can provide a remedy for occasional sleeplessness which in turn can cut the time it takes for an individual to feel sleepy.

ZzzQuil Sleep-Aid Ingredients

This Vicks formulated sleep aid has one major component that is diphenhydramine HCI a compound that helps one fall asleep[1]. Other inactive ingredients such as colorant and flavorings are added. Alcohol is present in the ZzzQuil Liquid drink form.

  • ZzzQuil is an over the counter sleep aid remedy that can be purchased easily at store or through various online web stores
  • It may help to treat occasional sleeplessness by inducing drowsiness and blocking alertness
  • It comes in two options-capsule form and liquid to cater to the user preference
  • Quickly absorb in the body

What are the Disadvantages of ZzzQuil Sleep-Aid?

  • Does not address the root causes of inability to fall asleep or disturbances during sleep
  • The main ingredient Diphenhydramine HCl functions to provide sleepiness by inducing drowsiness. It aims to block mental alertness and can be potentially dangerous
  • It contains alcohol about 10% that is not good for those shying away from this substance

ZzzQuil Sleep Aid Review – Final Verdict

The use of any top sleep aids should be carefully considered first by any individual searching to treat their sleeping problem. The ZzzQuil main function of inducing sleepiness is by promoting drowsiness which can be potentially dangerous. This is how this product works and will not address the important issue of inability to fall asleep and other sleep concerns. The lack of information with regards to specific side effects and other warnings lack supporting details that would benefit users.

Overall this product is good if you want to feel groggy just to fall asleep but, if you need to treat the root causes of your sleeplessness then this product will certainly disappoint you. The one-approach system of ZzzQuil is questionable in providing adequate relief to sleep problems. And it is not smart to experiment with this type of sleep aid due to its major component that may cause serious implications. Price wise this is not a practical buy but instead, look for sleep aid products that will have a holistic approach to treating your sleep-related issues.

    Sound sleep with drowsiness during the day
    I’m the manager in my father’s company, and too much is required of me. There are many operations and activities that I run, making me overthink and always stressed. I find myself in the middle of the night, staring at the ceiling sleepless. I had to look for a quick remedy because my eyes were always heavy, and I ‘couldn’t perform my tasks effectively. I needed a sleeping aid supplement to curb my insomnia. I found ZzzQuil from its official website with the hope that it would ease and make my body and mind to relax appropriately. ZzzQuil is what I was looking for all along. On using the supplement, I would find myself sleeping soundly, relaxed, and waking up in the morning fresh. While at work, I would experience some drowsiness, and this would block my alertness at work. I had to reduce my dosage from two to one tablespoon to avoid the drowsiness.

    A little on the weaker side
    know that Zzzquil is not a strong prescription sleep medication, but sometimes when I take it almost feels like nothing happened. I have a very hectic job and many days I am lucky to get five hours of sleep. On the weekends I occasionally would take one of these to sleep in a bit longer, but much to my surprise many of these days doesn’t even help me get to sleep. I would lay in bed two hours or longer trying to get to sleep, which I know for a fact is more than enough time for the sleep aid to start working. I guess you have no alternative right now but to continue using it.

    Trouble sleeping
    I have struggled with insomnia for years and I’ve tried many products to try to get a handle on it. A lot of people have told me ZZZquil really works, but I’m not having that kind of result. I tried using it several different times over the past few months and it hasn’t helped at all.

    Needed help
    I’ve struggled with sleep issues for the past few months and I’ve tried a lot of home remedies, but nothing has worked. My doctor recommended that I try ZZZquil before we tried a prescription. I have used it the past four nights and it worked about 50% of the time. Either that or I am just so exhausted I’m actually sleeping. I’m just not sure about this stuff yet.

    I Do Love Sleeping Again
    I hate not sleeping. I don’t necessarily have diagnosed insomnia but I do suffer from anxiety and I overthink a lot of things, which means that I never really have a moment to turn my brain off. SO I needed something to just help me get some decent sleep otherwise I couldn’t function on a regular basis. Since I could find this in the stores I figured I would give it a try. It definitely helped me to feel tired and fall asleep which was a benefit. And for a lot of the nights that I tried it, it worked gloriously. However, when I’m overly stressed, or have what I guess might be considered true insomnia, it didn’t really help. So, for those who need help not all the time, this is perfect and will work perfectly. So it depends on what you need it for as to if it will work for you.

    Gives me a headache!
    I used to be able to take this to help me go to sleep at night when I was feeling stopped up and stuffy. It works fine on the weekends, in an emergency, but if you plan on going to work in the morning, the alcohol content will whip your behind. You have to make sure that you have been drinking water all day and that you are not dehydrated. I used to wake up with what felt like a hangover sometimes when I would take this sleep aid. No one wants to experience that when they have not even been drinking.

    I was so sleepy, but couldn’t sleep
    I was so sleepy all the time, but I just couldn’t sleep. I tried everything. I even went to my doctor, but nothing worked. Finally, I tried ZZZquil and I’m really surprised that this, of all things I’ve tried, works. I feel amazing during the day now and have no trouble performing my daily tasks

    Gave me a Few Good nights of Sleep
    I started to take this after I had sleep trouble. I would say the sleep that I got with this was decent, but it doesn’t work as well after a while. The potency starts to go down, and it’s probably because of the usage of it, but after a bit, I just gave up and used other supplements. Also, I didn’t think this tasted that great. The sleep that I did get with it though was nice and restful, which I have to say was probably one of the main advantages when it worked.
