***I was given this product to try for free in exchange for my honest review.***
As a middle aged parent of children with a full-time job sleep at times can almost seem like second nature to me. I wrestle during the year with either sleeping at times too little or sleeping at times too much while in minor pain from a headache or back pains while never feeling rested and refreshed. The polls by National Sleep Foundation though show that I am not alone.
“Nearly 1/3 of people said they experienced difficulties in their relationships, 10% more than those without pain.”
“4 out of every 10 people suffering sleeplessness with minor pain said their mood was affected.”
“1/3 of people said their sleeplessness with minor pain has interfered with their work.”
Recently, I was given Advil PM to try free for my sleeplessness and minor aches and pains. I was leery at first because I have never wanted to use a sleep aid to fall asleep and get in the habit but thought I would give Advil a try as it was a name I have heard for years and trusted.
Advil PM is made to break the pain/sleeplessness cycle and not only treat the pain while resting but also allow that the person still remain sleeping. As pain can lead to sleep loss, cutting out the pain will insure that the sleep can be uninterrupted.
This study with ADVIL PM is based on 7 hours of sleep which is the minimal recommended amount for adults. Doctors also stress that reducing phone and tablet use before bed, reducing alcohol intake and not eating sugary treats or exercising right before bed are also helpful in preventing a sleepless night.
Last night, I took the ADVIL PM as my back was hurting and legs were sore from exercise and I went to bed early. I turned off the tv, phone and lay back hoping for a restful sleep. After taking about fifteen minutes in I began to feel myself get more tired and find it harder to stay awake and alert. The pain was still present but the desire to rest my eyes seemed to take over. After about a half hour the pain was gone and I was on my way to a good nights sleep. I hoped. When I first woke up it again it was 6 am and I had slept nine hours. This was a success. I will say I still felt groggy but that partially could have been due to being warm and not wanting to meet the Wintry day outside that was blistery cold.
The coated capsule was easy to swallow as I struggle taking pills and was put off at first by the size of the caplet. The coating made it go down easy. The Caplets feature a dual layer patented formula of ibuprofen and Diphenhydramine Citrate which combines to sooth you to sleep and also relieve your pain.
Overall, I would say Advil PM was a success. I would not personally use this nightly but I could definitely see the benefit of not only having fast pain relief but also resting a full nights sleep. I would recommend this product. Always remember to use it as directed!
