FAQs

Q: Will ZzzQuil make me feel groggy in the morning?
A: There are many factors that could influence how rested you feel in the morning. These could include the number of hours you sleep, the time that you take ZzzQuil, and other individual factors. 
It is recommended that you take ZzzQuil when you have adequate time to get a full night’s sleep.Q: How is ZzzQuil different from 'PM' products?
A: Some 'PM' products contain a pain reliever such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen in addition to a sleep-aid ingredient. ZzzQuil is different from these products because it does not contain any pain reliever. ZzzQuil: Not for pain. Not for colds. Just for sleep.

Q: Can I take ZzzQuil every night?
A: ZzzQuil should only be used for occasional sleeplessness. Stop use and ask a doctor if sleeplessness persists continuously for more than two weeks. Insomnia may be a symptom of a serious underlying medical illness.

Q: Is ZzzQuil the same thing as NyQuil?
A: ZzzQuil is not the same thing as NyQuil. ZzzQuil reduces the amount of time it takes to fall asleep and relieves occasional sleeplessness, while NyQuil treats nighttime symptoms of the common cold and flu such as sneezing, sore throat, headache, minor aches and pains, fever, runny nose, and cough.
