All of the PM OTC sleep preparations contain Diphenhydramine which can interact with some of the common medications we take for CIDP.
The easiest way to check it out is to try Drugs.com
Yes they are addictive. I used to be addicted to them, or at least i needed them in larger and larger quantities to get to sleep no matter how tired i was.
I now have Restoril (Temazepam) to take as needed but i find i don’t need it so much.
Was given Ambien once in hospital, had scary nightmare and nurses found me wandering and crying in hallway, so if you try it, be sure you are not alone, and throw your car keys in the bottom of the pool 😀
Hope this helps
