To start things off, I am not the kind of person that just goes out and tries stuff on a whim. I do my research and even then I still do not just do things without the proper knowledge. I don't know about you, but I like to know a little about what I am doing before I just jump into things. There are several reasons that I try to keep this mindset. For one, being educated never hurts and two, why not learn a thing or two? Anyways, today I am here to talk about equate sleep aids – an over the counter sleeping aid that is available at walmart. I believe it is their brand, but don't quote me on that. As many of you also know, this brand is very inexpensive. Almost ever product under the equate label is cheap. I know, I know, the first idea that is probably floating around in you people's heads is that anything with this name brand on it is of poor quality. Well, that may be so for many other products, but I may have to argue with that idealism for this one. Just because something is inexpensive doesn't exactly mean that it doesn't work. There is a lot more to the picture than that. There are several ways in which a company, like the one that was spoken of before, can get a good product to be sold at a low cost. That's a whole different story chalked full of business management speeches. Therefore, I will hold back from going on about it. I just wanted to get the point across about cost and quality.

If you haven't noticed, these days there are a lot of different over the counter sleeping aids out there. One of the most well known of which is the simply sleep nighttime sleep aid. Now, I don't know everything about the contents of these caplets or possess the knowledge on how the contents inside them actually work. However, I would have to say that there is a reason why the prescription medications are more expensive and require a doctor's prescription. One of my guesses is that they are a little more potent or stronger than the over the counter pills. Maybe they are and maybe they aren't, like I said – I am no doctor. However, I do know that I would consult my doctor before going ahead with any of these medications. My mother uses the equate sleep aid and has had a lot of decent comments to say about it. I do have a few problems with getting to sleep at night, but I believe that part of the problem is that I drink too much caffeine before I go to bed. So I will have to cut that out and see if it helps before I go to considering sleeping aids or sleep vitamins.
