    I don't believe it will hurt the quality of your sleep; if you actually end up sleeping better (and feel well the next day), it can probably help. If you are having trouble sleeping there may be a cause for it that needs to be addressed, however.

    Check this thread here. Pretty much every sleep aid has been talked about there.

    As far as Benadryl: I find it knocks me out, but I'm groggy as hell the next day.

    The best combo I've personally found so far is a Mg/Ca supp, with a high Mg content, combined with a high quality herbal sleep supp (Valarian root, a bunch of other stuff). Seems to work consitantly, with no side effects.

    Like noe said in the other thread, GABA. It gives you pretty little dreams and you can sleep longer with it while still being able to go to sleep the next night. On top of that it is a GH potentiater.

    I'll have to check when I get home from work; I believe it's a 2:1 ratio of Mg to Ca, and it's a product made by NOW.

    400:200mg?

    BTW, check what form of Mg it is
    Mg oxyde is pretty much useless
    Mg aspartate or citrate or malate is much, much more bio-available
