How To Get To Sleep With A Cold And Stay Asleep

What cold medicines make you fall asleep?

I have a horrible cold and all I want to do is sleep, but my sore throat has been keeping me up. Nyquil doesn't work for me, it actually makes me less tired, so I was just wondering if there is other medications that make you sleepy? Thanks guys.

Hot make someone fall asleep and stay asleep?

Hi my sister pranked me and now its my turn to get revenge. I need her to fall asleep and not wake up from me doing anything, like moving her and stuff like that. And my prank is AWESOME! Also when she wakes up, she needs to NOT remember anything that happened. Because im going to take some pictures of her and show it to her later. So I need something that has to make her fall asleep and stay asleep and not remember anything that happend the next day. AND DONT WORRY IM NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ILLEGAL.

Can't sleep with cold even after nyquil?

NyQuil can have the opposite effect on you, it does the same thing to me. I take theraflu & use a breathe right strip to keep my sinuses open. If I still can't sleep I take a mild sleep aid (the stuff I take is prescription but any over the counter sleep aid should work.) Be sure to drink plenty of water.

I hope this helps, feel better soon.

Blankets (a lot of blankets)

I have a heated blanket but we are worried to kill the battery.

What else would be good to bring with us so we and stay warm and toasty?

Also, any heating devices you would recommend?

Does COLD milk help you sleep?

It shouldn't matter. Good luck! Santa knows when you are sleeping, he knows when you're awake...

A cup of warm milk is no magic sleep potion, yet it is probably the most common food associated with bedtime. Milk contains two substances that are known to be related to sleep and relaxation, the hormone melatonin and the amino acid tryptophan. The amount of melatonin in a glass of milk is minute, much less than what would be taken in a supplement. The amount of tryptophan in milk is also small. In addition, our digestive process is complex. Considering these factors, it is unlikely that a glass of warm — or cold — milk would shorten the length of time that it takes to fall asleep.

Though milk components and serving temperature are not likely to influence the onset of sleep through physiological means, warm milk might have psychological significance. The routine of consuming a glass of warm milk may elicit memories of mom, home, and comforts of childhood that help us to relax. This is part of the natural transition from wakefulness to sleep. Recommendations include practicing stress reduction techniques, sticking to a regular sleep schedule, creating a relaxing bedroom environment, and avoiding caffeine or heavy meals close to bedtime.
