Has anyone ever taken Unisom?

I am having difficulty sleeping at night. I can't seem to either fall asleep or stay asleep.

  • I tried Unisom, but it didn't work for me, they had to prescribe me Ambien. But make sure with the Unisom that you have at least 6 hours to dedicate to sleep otherwise you could wake up still drowsy and even feel more tired then before.,

  • Yes, took it 5 min ago as a matter of fact. They work, but make sure you'll be able to get at least 5 or 6 hours of sleep, or you'll feel crappy in the morning.

    I have prescription sleeping pills, and I take unisom more often than my prescription. It'll work perfectly as long as you lie down after taking it.

    For me it gives me just enough meds to put and keep me asleep without putting me into a "coma" sleep like my prescription does.
