Any sleepy alternatives to antihistamines?

In WDDTY vol 15 no 9 (page 3), you state that antihistamines are “often wrongly used to induce sleep”. Please explain what harm this will do. I find that a half tablet of Nytol works very well. I will be very disappointed to be discouraged from taking these as they make such a difference.

What harmless alternatives do you suggest? I go to sleep okay, but wake up after four or five hours. – Grace Vincent, Sheffield

WDDTY replies: Products such as Nytol are only meant for occasional use. They have side-effects such as constipation, dry mouth and difficulty passing urine, and interact with other medications such as Benadryl. If you need something long term, we suggest Lehning Passiflora drops, a homoeopathic combination herbal remedy that is both safe and effective.
