Sleeping pills for long haul flights

Jump to last reply

I would like some fresh opinions on the various knock out drops that you take for a long flight. In the past we have borrowed some ambien from a friend, but I don't know if I want to do that anymore so I would like some opinions on that stuff vs. OTC sleeping stuff.

The few times I have taken something like unisom, I hate the groggy feeling when you wake up. Plus, we don't sleep easily sitting up in a plane seat so I need a real knock-out punch. Once I tried benadryl and got the twitchies instead of the sleepies, it was horrible!!

We will be doing Australia and S. Africa this year from California, so 14-15 hours all in one shot, yuck.
