Take a night nurse. I guarantee you won't wake up for hours, no matter what time you take them.

I used them for a bad flu last year and collapsed on to the sofa. Didn't realise it would be that effective!

Anxiety pills should have the same effect right , both tablets are meant to calm and settle you down....
It might depend which ones. I'm talking Chlordiazepoxide rather than Kalms but maybe Kalms could I dunno. I'm not gonna try!

blackdragonthegreat- Yeah it is tough to wake up and you do feel like **** but its better than having no sleep at all. Believe me I've done that and taken a practical drama exam, rehearsing for 10 hours. That wasn't fun.

I took a quarter of one once and needless to say the next day I couldn't get up at all.

I took sleeping tablets for a week or so. I found it hard to come off them and they did not seem to help all that much.

No, never. I'm one of those annoying people that fall asleep as soon as their head hits the pillow

I've tried some from Holland and Barret but they didn't work - well, the first night they did but only really as a placebo affect I think, not properly.

Does anyone know, are there pills you can take to keep you up longer? I've got a lot of revision to do for a resit in august and can't seem to concentrate past a certain time at night, but then I work for half the day so need to expand the number of hours in my day lol.

Yes, prescription.
Over the counter ones are just glorified antihistamines.

No, I just read random terms and conditions from random sites, it does wonders.

I've taken them a few times and always felt really groggy and sleepy until mid-afternoon the next day, if you do decide to use them make sure you do a test run on a night when you dont have anything the next day, just to check that they're okay.

They make me throw up, so I've given up on them. Wish I could take them though.

I had to take them between the age of 5-7 years old because I was waking up at 3 in the morning. I haven't taken them for the last 8 years though.
