Sleeping pills?

I need a sleeping pill that will make me get a full 8 hours of sleep without feeling drowsy the next day...does anyone know of something like this?

Update:

I just want to take a sleeping pill one time, i just really need to sleep tonight because i have to get up early tomorrow (5:30 am) and i will be running around alllll day.

    Not unless you get prescription medication from a doctor. Most of the stuff sold over the counter contains benadryl, or something close to it.

    Benadryl is an antihistamine (for the sniffles), but it has a side effect of making you drowsy. However the side effect lasts as long as there is a minimum amount of the drug in your system, and if you want to wake up earlier, you will be drowsy.

    So go to a doc, explain your needs, and take the advice, and take the prescription medication.

    Im not sure about something that will keep you knocked out for that long, but I take melatonin, which is avaliable in the same area that vitamins and such are found in most grocery and/or drug stores. Unlike OTC sleeping pills that I can (and have) litteraly eat an entire bottle of and feel zero effect, these work great and start to within just half an hour.

    You are thinking too much about your task ahead. Walk around your block a few times briskly and you will sleep like a log. Don't forget to set the alarm.

    Next time you want to sleep and the sleep won't come, begin to read a Holy Book, especially a really powerful one like the Bible or the Torah.

    You can get Ambien from a doctor, some people really like it. It doesn't work so well for me, and I use temazepam, also by prescription. Some people really like Tylenol PM. Lots of choices out there, give them a try. G'night, sleep tight!
