You can buy a variety of sleeping pills without a prescription.

There are basically four types, two herbal and two medicinal:-
Herbal
Lavender type sleeping pills (KALMS or others)
Valerian type sleeping pills (KALMS or other brands)

Diphenhydramine (famously Nytol).
Promethazine (infamously as Night Nurse or Phenergan)

Steer clear of the promethazine, imho, nasty stuff. Try the valerian ones or diphenhydramine. The latter is available only from a pharmacy over the counter, you might get the others from various random health shops or supermarkets.

Diphenhydramine etc only supposed to be used for 10 days in a row. You want to use whatever it is for a few days in a row, same time every day to 'reset' your sleep. It might take a few days. The theory is called 'sleep hygiene'. Most likely symptoms are dry mouth and obviously drowsiness.
