List of Narcotic Sleeping Pills

Sleeping pills like Ambien, Motrin PM, and doxylamine are used to alleviate symptoms -including severe insomnia (inability to fall asleep or stay asleep), nighttime restlessness, and sometime for off-label purposes such as depression or anxiety.

Sleeping aids may be obtained by prescription or over the counter. Some forms are sold both ways, with strength being the factor that determines which way it allowed to be sold.
