Sleep Eze Eze Melts are a type of over-the-counter sleeping aid medication that is designed to help relieve occasional nighttime sleeplessness and insomnia. The active ingredient in Sleep Eze Eze Melts is diphenhydramine hydrochloride.
Diphenhydramine is an antihistamine that works by blocking histamine, a natural substance produced by the body that is responsible for allergic reactions and plays a role in sleep regulation. By blocking histamine, diphenhydramine reduces the overall activity in the central nervous system, leading to drowsiness and facilitating sleep.
