Why we sometimes can’t fall asleep
There are many reasons why we do not fall asleep: stress, worries, and thoughts of the next day often do not allow us to rest. But excessive use of screens in the evening also has a negative effect on the quality of sleep and reduces the formation of melatonin, a hormone from the tryptamine group that controls our day-night rhythm.
In addition, tension or the position in which you sleep can also have a negative effect on nightly recovery. Shift work and long plane journeys, which throw off the body’s natural rhythms, are other contributing factors to poor sleep hygiene.
Our body has to adjust to new time cycles again and again and so-called jet lag develops. For short-term treatment and self-medication, over-the-counter sleeping pills and other remedies such as calming teas are ideal and ensure that we come to rest.
However, if symptoms occur that go beyond normal difficulties falling asleep, then a pathological sleep disorder (insomnia) can be responsible. Insomnia requires medical evaluation in any case and should not be treated yourself with sleeping pills without a prescription.
Buy sleeping pills without a prescription
Non-prescription preparations from our mail-order pharmacy use valerian and other ingredients that have sleep-inducing properties as gentle sedatives and promote restful sleep. Valerian is one of the herbal hypnotics and is a shrub from which an effective extract is obtained.
Substances such as lemon balm hops and passion flowers also come from nature, which has a calming and sleep-inducing effect and thus improves sleep over the long term.
Valerian is considered the strongest sleeping pill of herbal representatives. These remedies are also suitable for calming during the day.
There are also conventional medical sleeping pills available without a prescription. They belong to the drug class of antihistamines. Histamine is responsible for wakefulness and can keep us from sleeping or prevent us from falling asleep at night.
Antihistamines contain substances that can make you very tired after taking them. These medicines are normally used for allergies, but their effects are also used for sleep disorders.
When taking it, you should pay attention to the dosage specified in the package leaflet. These remedies often contain doxylamine or a similar substance and should be taken about 30 minutes to an hour before bedtime.
However, if you have trouble sleeping, do not use the tablets for more than two weeks at a time without medical advice. When taking sleeping pills, be sure to avoid consuming alcoholic food and drinks.
Because even in combination with a small amount of alcohol, the simultaneous intake of antihistamines can cause drowsiness and the ability to concentrate can be severely impaired. When using self-medication, pay attention to the information in the package leaflet.

When do sleeping pills help?
Insomnia can have a variety of causes. Many types of sleeping pills are available in pharmacies for everyone without a prescription. You can also get a variety of sleeping pills from your Volksversand mail-order pharmacy. But before you resort to medication for your sleep disorder, you should consult a doctor. Very strong sleeping pills are also not available without a prescription; Drugs such as benzodiazepines such as Xanax 2 mg and Valium 10 mg must be prescribed by a doctor. This rule is not without reason: sedatives or sleeping pills of this strength quickly become addictive if they are taken too often or for too long.
