I’ve had trouble sleeping for just about as long as I can remember. I’m a light sleeper. Once I wake up I find it hard to fall back to sleep. I’m light sensitive and since I’ve put on some weight I can snore when my allergies are acting up. Let’s not even get into the pets or my loving husband. Needless to say I’m a mess! That’s where Alteril comes in!
I’ve tried things from the doctor. ALL of those left me feeling like a zombie or unable to get up when the alarm went off. Even though I was sleeping on those medications I never felt rested. I’ve tried over the counter sleep aids but they wore off in only about two hours. Alteril works differently for me. It helps lull me to sleep softly, like when you’re naturally tired. You can feel it working within 30 minutes but can feel the full effects in about an hour. You stay asleep but if you do wake up to use the bathroom or the fire alarm goes off, you’re ready to go. You can also easily fall back to sleep. You wake up feeling like you’ve slept well. You dream on this medication too and get through all the natural sleep stages. Even on the nights that I don’t take it I sleep better then before I had tried it. I will warn you that the first time you take this, it hits you like an “after Thanksgiving nap freight train” because of the Tryptophan.
I would wholeheartedly recommend this supplement to anyone with one word of caution. Some medications may have an interplay with the ingredients so if you’re taking any heart or blood pressure medication check with your doctor first!
