there's daytime and nighttime versions. I often take nighttime sudafed or Benadryl when boarding a flight from here to the UK. knocks me out, I can usually sleep for nearly all of the seven hour flight, very little jet lag.
Why the regular flights to the UK?

Sleepers are a strange array

Philadelphia or Dulles to Heathrow = Xanax or Zopiclone, never both. Xanax is the only benzo that bypasses the atypical swaddling clothed embrace, instead heading straight to sleep. Complete mongfest waking up, like your half-dream was set in Kensington and you couldn’t find passport/docs/bags etc

Melatonin and CBD if I had to again, but the apex sleeper is chloral-betaine 707mg (chloral-hydrate essentially), big dark purple lozenges that look like a William Gibson cliche (we call them the The Emperor). Will smash any insomniac to oblivion. Next to no pics online, only 500mg light burgundy

I couldn't be bothered with prescription drugs for flying, over the counter were good enough for me.

another key when flying US->UK is to eat dinner before you board the evening flight, pop the pill, get in sensory depravation mode (eye mask, earplugs), cover up with a blanket, ignore everything around you and try to go to sleep immediately upon takeoff.

screw all the drink and dinner offerings, they suck anyway and usually come a couple of hours after take off, which for a 9:00 pm departure means you're eating at 11:00 pm and not even trying to get some shut eye until midnight, losing three hours of valuable sleep time. Just make sure you wake up for the breakfast cart just prior to landing. Scarf down a croissant and few coffees, brush yr teeth, and yr ready to hit the express to Paddington.

ny to london is only a short flight anyway what is that? 8 hours?

around seven hours, which makes it tricky to get enough solid sleep time compared to a long haul. if you stay up to eat dinner and watch some in-flight entertainment, you're essentially skipping a night's sleep.

London-New Zealand must have been grueling, were there any direct flights?

coming back to NY is easy, just a long day. going west to east sucks because they are usually overnight flights.

london nz always involves a stopover. it used to involve 3. nowadays you generally either go LA which is awful, singapore which is great
or dubai or something

Always good to have options

Chloral betaine is the perfect night’s sleep. It’s the only ‘script sleeper that gets you into rem sleep patterns. Zopiclone is more like inky blackness, liquid crystal, other zone. Yuck

All past tense of course, some of the most sought after scripts among clients because of their trade/exchange value

My worry is that if I bought 12 330ml bottles, I would drink them all in one night
