Product Review for ZzzQuil Nighttime Sleep Aid
In this Hub I will talk about the product ZzzQuil, from the makers of NyQuil. The product itself is a non-habit forming sleep aid that is supposed to put you asleep quickly, and allow you a better nights sleep.
I will also talk about whether the ZzzQuil is worth buying, Compare it to other sleep aids, talk about the effectiveness of the pills, talk about the value you get in the package, and give my total analysis of whether the ZzzQuil is truly worth trying, or a bust and not worth the time or money.
What is ZzzQuil
ZzzQuil is a relatively new product on the market that is a sleep aid. The product is from the makers of NyQuil which is a sleep aid/ cold and flu medicine. The NyQuil name is a great product that allows you to get a full nights rest while sick, without coughing, or blowing your nose all night. Personally I have used that product for a LONG time, and have even used it as a sleep aid in the past because personally I think it works better than most Sleep Aids I have tried. With that being said, the makers of NyQuil then made ZzzQuil, which at first I was excited to try, but after using it multiple times I have mixed feelings about this item, so let me talk about it more below.
About the Pills themselves.
First off the product claims that they are non habit forming. Well while I do believe this as I am not addicted, I would like to add that if you use these every night for a month, you may start to require them to fall asleep. Just my personal opinion, especially with sleep aids in the past. BUT they do in fact claim that they are non habit forming. This was a big plus for me, as I like taking sleep aids when i don't have to wake up early the next day, or when I really need a good nights rest. So this may happen a couple times a week. With these pills I am able to in fact take them, and not have to worry about becoming addicted to them.
Another thing that I do personally like is that like some of the other sleep aid companies out there, sleep aid is for the most part made up of one active ingredient. That one active ingredient is Diphenhydramine HCI 25 MG. This is really the only ingredient that is in each liquid cap, and you take two of them per serving.
So overall I really enjoy the fact that knowing there are not a number of different ingredients, and different things that may or may not be addicting you, but one ingredient that is supposed to work.
Keep in mind there are other inactive ingredients that are used in this product. But they are nothing more than inactive ingredients like water, the gel capsule, coloring to make the pill blue,
Initially when I started taking the product I was happy to see that it was non habit forming. With that being said I also have liked NyQuil in the past, so I had no problem trying the product. Initially I tried taking the recommended dose of two pills. Then went to bed. I personally do not have a hard time falling asleep, but sometimes like using something to help me get to sleep quicker, and to get me a fuller nights rest. The ZzzQuil did an effective job of helping me fall asleep and stay asleep. Also I felt as if I did get a full nights rest. I think overall the pills were able to effectively allow me to fall asleep and stay asleep.
So obviously the question is the value, and pricing. for a 12 pack of ZzzQuil, you will pay around $5.00, and for a 48 count pack about $13.00. One thing that you should note is that a 12 count pack is only for 6 nights, and that a 48 count pack is only used for 24 days. While this is still a good amount of nights sleep for the buck, reading the front of the package may be slightly misleading if you read and see that you receive 12, or 48 pills. (As you can see in the photo on the right, the pills are broken into 2 per serving)
None the less, the product is effective for the pricing. While there are cheaper sleep aids out there, they have multiple ingredients, and in my opinion may not be very healthy. Although I stand with the NyQuil Product ZzzQuil, and say that the pills are worth the money that you will invest in them.
So overall I think that you will enjoy this sleep aid. The pills go down easily, and they are worth the money that you will invest in them. I think that they are worth spending the money on and trying, and you will soon be buying a larger pack. I think that they are safer than other sleep aids, while providing a great product by a great brand name. Overall I give this pill a 5 star, and think that it is a great product for you to try if you need assistance falling asleep, or wan to reduce the time that it takes for you to fall asleep.
