Works better than Benadryl

The active ingredient in the orange box Unisom,doxylamine succinate,works way beter for me than the active ingredient diphenhydramine which is in Benadryl, Tylenol PM, etc.

The orange box...Read complete review

The active ingredient in the orange box Unisom,doxylamine succinate,works way beter for me than the active ingredient diphenhydramine which is in Benadryl, Tylenol PM, etc.

The orange box Unisom (not to be confused with the blue box Unisom which has diphenhydrmine) does not give me the jitters that Benadryl, etc. does.

I prefer to take just a half Unisom because sometimes I am very sleepy for half of the next day if I take a whole one.

I am currently using Unisom at night to tame the itching from both poison ivy and fire ant bites -the active ingredient is an antihistamine. It helps me sleep and reduces the itching to near zero.

Other times I've used a whole Unisom to help me sleep in hotel rooms or a half to help me sleep if I am wide awake during the night due to perimnopausal insomnia.

I've used Ambien before and had horrible side effects. Unisom is a much safer alternative in my opinion.

As with all sleep medicines, over the counter or otherwise, this is best to take for less than a week at a time. Any more than this, and tolerance begins/the product doesn't work as well/insomnia may increase.

Didn't work for me

I tried this several times, hoping this would be the product that did the trick, but not even a yawn! Another example that not every product works the same for everyone.

      Comments about Unisom SleepTabs, Nighttime Sleep-Aid Tablets, 48 ea:

      I have needed sleep help in different forms for years. It has appeared to be a family thing since both parents and brother had problems. I take a prescription item which was reduced last year due to health problems. I needed something else to help get to sleep and stay asleep. This has worked well for me for several months without its effects being reduced. I have no morning hangover or other ill effects. It's reasonable enough in price to try it out. I hope people read these reviews realizing that each of us are different and what works for me may or may not work for you. It's a coin toss no matter what a person tries. I have so many medical problems that if I can take it, it is probably worth a try for anyone who needs sleep medications to give it a try. As several have pointed out, it has a score, so maybe those who think it's too strong could break it in half.

      I take one sleeptab about 30 minutes before sleep. It has worked at the same level for the longest I have taken any sleep help medication but one prescription but one. It also has no side effects that I have noticed. I am very pleased.

      Comments about Unisom SleepTabs, Nighttime Sleep-Aid Tablets, 48 ea:

      I have always been a terrible sleeper. I often get anxious at night and then can't turn my mind off long enough to fall asleep. Once or twice a week, I take a half of one Unisom, and within 90 minutes, I feel very relaxed and can't keep my eyes open and actually get some blessed sleep. I do wake up feeling a little bit groggy the next day, but sometimes that's worth it for a good night's sleep. On the plus side, this is probably the most effective, non-habit forming, non prescription sleep aid that has no dangerous side effects. On the con side, it does seem to take a little while to kick in (I would recommend taking a 60-90 minutes before bedtime) and there's the next day's groggriness to contend with... but this is probably the best one can do for a non-addictive, over-the-counter sleep aid.

          Make sure you have enough time to sleep before you take the pill. If not you will feel sleepy when you wake up.

            My first two pregnancies I suffered horrible nausea and vomiting and was on prescription meds. I heard about Unisom tabs combined with Vitamin B6 at night but thought it made no sense. For my third pregnancy I figured I would give this a try. It helped so much. I would take it at night with a B6. The next day would feel great. When I missed a dose I had a bad day the next day. I have no idea how this works but it was a lifesaver for me. I had some morning grogginess but I could deal with that much better than a day of puking. I am so glad I used this, it worked better than the prescription med my dr had me on.

              I tried this product before sleep with little to no food, not even sugar or caffeine, and still did not work. I think I felt sleepy for about 20 minutes and then yawned a few hours later but was still awake after 5 hours. Awful product.

                  Love it, I've tried melatonin 3 and Simply sleep. Melatonin works fine but I think this is stronger, simply sleep makes me feel sick and anxious, love the natural feeling of this medicine. Also I just needed half the pill, if you take the whole tablet better take it early at night like 7-8, so you don't feel groggy in the morning.

                  PROS: Far more effective than diphenydramine. No problems with dry mouth (which is typical for antihistamines). Does not keep me from waking during night, but does help me return to sleep. Drugstore.com offers it at a good price.

                  CONS: Effects last well into the next morning, making it hard to get up, and creating drowsiness throughout morning.

                  Overall, I get more sleep with this product, but it comes at a price! But sometimes it's worthi it!
