    well, one night i was sooo tired and i didnt think they were working.....i think i took about 8/10 tabs and got the shakes and felt all weird and sickly...i couldnt wait for my shift to finish and get home felt awful

    Ive done night shifts for 7 years the best advice is to Definitley try and get your sleep during the day otherwise you will suffer. Didn't get on with pro plus but I sometimes have diet red bull if required. If you start to lag splash your face with cold water

    I have had experience of working nightshifts and I would recommend that you go to the gym for about an hour at the end of your shift.

    Gyms such as Fitness First open at 6.30 am so they are ideal to drop into when you have finished a night shift.

    I gurantee that you won't have any problems sleeping if you get into a habit of exercising at the end of your shift and it will keep you nice and healthy.

    You just fulfilled the first rule of law enforcement: make sure when your shift is over you go home alive. Here endeth the lesson.

    black out your windows and ear plugs anything to stop any distractions any put house phone on mute you'll be amazed the number of times that phone goes!
    i used to take antihistamines what were drowsy to help me nod off if i needed to switch off and berocca when i woke up
