Recently, the makers of Vicks NyQuil sent me a sample of the liquid version of ZzzQuil.
I was down to try it because not so long ago I actually bought my better half the pill version of ZzzQuil.
I was apprehensive about buying him sleeping pills so I was looking for something a bit more natural or at least something that was a known entity to me in the scary "pill for everything" aisle at the grocery store.
That was when I first stumbled on ZzzQuil. And when I started struggling to get a good night's sleep it took everything in me to get one of those pills down.
Not because ZzzQuil is bad (I'm getting to that) but because me and pills are bad.
I just psyche myself out and I can't get them down my throat.
So here comes liquid ZzzQuil to the rescue!
What I love about ZzzQuil is that it works. Fast. Evidently, it's active ingredient diphenhydramine HCI has something to do with that.
I'm no chemist (though I did get into Cornell as a wannabe geneticist) so you'll have to look that up.
I also love love LOVE that it is in liquid form for me and in pill form for him (LiquiCap® to be specific).
And of course I bought it because it said right on the package that it is non-habit forming. Heck, even 12 year olds can use it. Which, of course, made me skeptical that it would do the deed on my 6'6 better half.
And it did!
Which of course made me less skeptical about it working on me.
And it did!
There are about a million and one other things I loved as well. For instance, nothing is more frustrating than fighting your tamper proof med packaging when you are sleep deprived.
The packaging was SUPER easy to hack into. which is a good thing for me in my no-kid house.
It has the standard kid proof stuff too, but not the Ft. Knox packaging I've experienced lately with, say, my chewy prenatals (that don't have enough iron in them because people who want to be moms are not responsible enough to keep chewy iron filled candy looking meds away from their kids. I digress...)
ZzzQuil saved my butt. I woke up refreshed and a lot less angry about the prenatal thing.
And a lot more ready for hot yoga.
Check out (and like) ZzzQuil on Facebook and in real life and tweet about your #ZzzQuilNight once you wake well rested.
