Marketed herbal sleeping aids are just dietary supplements. The herbal supplement industry does not have to provide evidence that their products do anything. Pharmaceutical sleep preparations have been rigorously tested for efficacy and most importantly, have an established dosage along with the benefit/risk ratio.

At the best, melatonin supplements 'might' offer you only an extra half hour of rest after you have been taking them for approx 10 to 14 days. Many people have not found them not to have any effect at all.

Insomnia is often a symptom of anxiety and/or depression. Re establishing proper sleep routines using proven sleep medication in conjunction with cognitive counselling might resolve your problem.

A sleeping pill is a type of sleeping aid, but some sleeping aids might not be pills.

The sleeping aid will help you to relax so you can sleep well, the sleeping pill will mess with the chemicals in your brain and force you to sleep. To help you sleep longer take melatonin. It's a supplement, when taken on a regular basis will help your body to get proper rest. Our bodies are supposed to make melatonin but the fluoride in the water has disrupted our pineal gland and it doesn't always produce like it should.
