Hi, we are flying to/from South Africa soon and I am worried about the long flight and not sleeping. I just cannot sleep on flights, and this is a long one. I need dark & quiet to sleep so headphones won’t help.

Can anyone recommend anything that would knock me out.... without taking an actual sleeping pill. Any good herbal alternatives or tips?

Thank you smile

Piriton liquid. Or night nurse.

My GP will usually give me 1 or 2 sleeping tablets to cover a long haul flight.

I ordered one when I got on a 14 hour overnight flight once for straight after take off (was flying business). The steward asked me what size - single, double or medicinal. Medicinal measure worked a treat.
