Nytol One-a-Night Tablets
Nytol One-a-Night Tablets are clinically shown to help relieve temporary sleeplessness by promoting a regular sleeping pattern. They are the perfect addition to your bedtime routine if you’re having trouble drifting off to sleep, as you simply take one tablet 20 minutes before bed and you’ll find no trouble in gaining a full night of rest.
The active ingredient is diphenhydramine hydrochloride, an antihistamine that causes sleepiness or drowsiness. Temporary difficulties in getting a good night’s sleep can be caused by various problems such as stress, jet lag or personal problems such as bereavement. In sleep problems of this type, Nytol One-A-Night has been shown to help sufferers to fall asleep faster, have a longer and deeper sleep, and to wake up feeling rested in the morning. Do not take Nytol One-A-Night for more than 2 weeks without consulting your doctor.
