Nytol is an over the counter sleep aid available at just about every drug store. Produced by Glaxo-Smith Kline, Nytol uses the chemical Diphenhydramine Hydrochloride as the main sleep inducing agent. Considered a sedating antihistamine, Nytol has powerful chemicals to induce sleep quickly on the occasional sleepless night.
Prolonged use of Nytol becomes less effective as the body becomes tolerant of the drug. Nytol has a few reported side effects that may affect some users of Nytol. In the end, Nytol is a good sleep aid if you suffer from occasional sleeplessness, but the chemicals, quick tolerance, and lack of long term aid for the millions of people who have a hard time falling asleep keeps Nytol far from being one of the best sleep aids available.
