RE: Benadryl and REM sleep
I have read that some people can develop a dependence on Benadryl for sleep. I stopped using it, just because it didn't do much for me right from the beginning. I also tried doxylamine succinate, another OTC drug promoted as a sleep aid, but it also does little for me. Neither does melatonin, although if you want to try melatonin you need to experiment. Too much melatonin supposedly will backfire and actually make you less able to sleep. I've never tried any prescription sleep aids because they're too scary.
