Arrived this morning as a free sample from Influenster (the consumer product survey and test market company) a little late for the 4th of July fireworks sounding like open warfare all night long, the makers of NyQuil have produced a new version of a gel cap called ZzzQuil (Vicks).
What it is: 25mg of Diphenhydramine HCL – better known as Benadryl (the anti-histamine), the FDA has also qualified this particular pharmaceutical for sleep assistance use in addition to its more conventional use as an anti-histamine.
As a sleep-aid, Diphenydramine is also the key active ingredient in other sleep aid formulations, such as Sominex (Prestige Brands) , Unisom (Chattem), and Nytol (Glaxo Klein Barney.)
Anyone who has taken Benadryl or any other DPH-based anti-histamine has probably experienced the drowsiness that is brought on by the DPH effects. Some of the formulations used for anti-histamine application include stimulants, such as caffeine, or maca to counteract these effects. Other forumulations, such as Tylenol PM, or Unisom, actually double the dosage to 50mg to have a “faster” onset effect.
This is simply Vicks introducing, a non-pain relieving formulation of its already popular NyQuil product line, excluding the acetominaphen (pain relief), and dextromethorphan (anti cough/anti mucus) components to bring a Proter & Gamble version of the product to market with a recognizable brand behind it. We’ll see if the pricing is any more aggressive for the formulation – but bottom-line, DPH makes you sleepy, quite fast.
So you might have found it annoying
that your fuzzy new Android phone/tablet doesn’t like to connect to WiFi in certain places with the terms and conditions to accept before allowing you to connect.
For me and my Samsung S4 Mini, it turned out to be a minor issue with Chrome’s pop up blocking.
After getting the usual error page like this: [SSL CONNECTION ERROR]
or this [WEB PAGE NOT AVAILABLE]
I opened another window and happened to be on the flysfo.com
website going through the Samsung instructions when I noticed the page suddenly changed and up popped the Accept Terms and Conditions page.
Accepted it and off I went on SFO Free WiFi (yea.)
