Ambien: Now this is a prescription drug, so you will need to make a visit to the doctor, and it's only recommended for long flights.
And be advised Ambien has been known to cause some weird dreams and hallucinations, so if you don't want to embarrass yourself on the plane, take it a few times before you fly check this website.
Or risk being that (bleep) hole who forces the plane to land early due to your "episodes." - Then what do I do? Smash this thing? What happens then, the door just suddenly opens miraculously?
Tylenol PM: These are over the counter and you'll want to look for "diphenhydramine," which is the same antihistamine found in Benadryl.
The downside with these types of drugs is that you might wake up feeling groggy, and where's the fun in that if you couldn't even drink first? Melatonin: Here's an all-natural option that some people swear by
Melatonin is a hormone that occurs naturally in the body.
The extra dose helps induce sleep and supposedly helps with jet lag too. No major side effects to that one either, but like anything else, you want to test it out first. Lastly, Dramamine: While most of you know Dramamine as the motion sickness pill, these little guys will pack a punch and they will knock you out. Don't take it for short flights though, you will 100% regret that. Sleep experts recommend introducing any of these drugs at least a week or two before you fly, that way you know how you react to it and can anticipate any side effects.
