Would it be ok?

if I took 3 unisoms instead of 2? I usually take 2 and they work after like an hour but i was wondering if 3 would kick in sooner. I need to sleep it is almost 3 and little guy will be up just after 7 unless I'm lucky.

  • You should call your doctor. If you are having issues sleeping he/she may be able to prescribe you ambien.

  • Can't be good for your liver. I wouldn't make it a habit.

  • honestly I don't see a problem with it as long as you're not taking more than what's reccomended during a 24 hour period and as long as you're sure you'll wake up b4 he does

  • No, you might not be able to wake up.

  • I have no problem waking up. As soon as I hear his voice I'm wide awake. If I'm not awake at 7 DH gets home then and will take care of him for an hour or so if need be.

    I take sleep aids all the time cause i have insomnia from my RX, but even with the sleep aids I still wake as soon as he does. I just want to know if it is safe.

  • MomNbabyGirl I use Unisom or Sominex. I get them at the local drugstore and they work great usually. I just grow immunity to things quickly. Sominex is cheap it's like $3. $2.50 if you can get it on sale.

  • Try valerian root

  • Though you probably already took three, I wouldn't take more that the does says. Which is probably 2. Its just not safe. And three won't really help you fall asleep faster as you still need to digest the pills.
