 1  Insominia Not worth the pain of taking! Works fast, but it wears off during the night so I am usually tossing and turning by end of the night. By morning, I am usually feeling groggy and extremely sleepy. I have been having issues of anxiety and weight gain with it as well :( Will have to find something else for my insomnia. Stay away!

 1  Sleep I'm pregnant and could not sleep, I also have morning sickness. I was told it would help with both. However, it's hands down the worst medication I've ever taken. You do not stay asleep, you get the sweats, very tight chest, I always wake up nauseous and gagging, and the next day grogginess is accompanied by depression and anxiety. If you take this medicine, plan on doing nothing that next day. I wasn't even comfortable driving. HORRIBLE MEDICINE! F 20 7 days

 1  Sleep aid Definitely helped me sleep, but I was extremely groggy and in a fog the next day. Sooo what's the point? I honestly would've felt better with 5 hours of normal sleep than 9 hours of sleep on unisom. Don't recommend. M 31 1 days

 3  Hard time falling asleep Extreme head to toe night sweats in the last year. I take these every night, I ran out a few days ago and suddenly no sweats the last 2 nights. The meds did help me fall asleep, I would just wake up soaking wet from sweating F 39 5 years

 1  Insomnia I didn't realize until reading all of these reviews that this medication is responsible for my heart palpitations, anxiety and tight chest! I dreaded bedtime and had sleep anxiety but after 2 weeks without taking it everything went away!!! It was also making me gain weight which I could not figure out! Hate this crappy med! Don't take it!!! This medication also was also responsible for my tight chest and squeezing sensation which hurt and felt like i was having a heart attack all the time! F 55 6 months

 1  Insomnia Took this for sleep! Slept well but next day had a hungover feeling! Muscle twitching foggy fuzzy weird head feeling in the ear as well! Bad dreams and weird obsessive thinking! Off balance feeling and tired face feeling on one side of my face! It also gives you anxiety And depressed feelings! I think this is more than just an antihistamine! You get that next day nervy stressed foggy headed feeling both in the head And ears! Sounds amplified and shocks your head and ears causing anxiety or panic! M 54 1 days

 3  Sleep aid These worked great when I was pregnant (approved by OB) Now I've taking them again for 3 weeks and my ibs has flared. I'm filled with anxiety and the jitters. My stomach has been upset and I've felt kind of numb emotionally. I sleep great with them though! Unfortunately going to have to stop, not worth the added (shitty) side effects. F 33 21 days

 1  Insomnia It only took about 30 minutes to go to sleep. However, the next morning, I was dizzy, had a headache, felt totally messed up and could not function for at least 8 hours. I was also very fidgety during the night and restless. I experienced nausea the next morning as well. I will never take this again. I take medication for bipolar 1 disorder. I checked everywhere to see if this will interact with my medications and I could not find anywhere that showed it would have an interactions. However, I believe it did interact with my bipolar medication. F 48 1 days

 3  Sleep Aid / prenatal morning sickness Initially took a half of a unisom in combination with b-12 as prescribed by my midwife for morning sickness. It did help the morning sickness and helped me sleep as well. The biggest issue is that it made me feel blah the next day. Causes a Debbie downer affect and I wouldn't recommend for people who are depressed or in a dark place this will only make it worse F 36 0 days

 4  Opioid inducted insomnia So this does work for me I, but I have to take 4-5 a night in order to knock myself out and go into a sleep coma. I wake up at least once to go to the bathroom, during this time, I try not to pass back out while sleeping, and I've even fell asleep on the toilet before. So since 2018, every night after I take my unisom, I start to have really disturbing, intrusive violent thoughts, either directed towards myself, or my 8 year old cat (who I love and consider to be my son, I would never hurt him, and if I ever did, I'd probably kill myself). In order to prevent me from doing this (which I never would, but I was really disturbed and appauled that I had those thoughts and never would act on them). Before that, I had one that involved me killing myself with a katana I have. Please be mindful when you take unisom, because you may end up with the same thoughts like I had and they suck. Because of this incident, I'm going to be switching to melatonin. M 35 7 years

 3  Insomnia Accidentally took 5 once (the equate liquid gel type) and started hallucinating spiders (really sucked when I went to the bathroom), and it also made me feel like I was floating. Most recently however, it has been making me think violent and hurtful thoughts, to harm myself, or my 8 year old cat (I love my cat very much, I've raised him since he was 3 week, he imprinted into me, and I consider him to be my son) even though I know I would never harm, and if I did I'd probably end up killing myself. When I'm not taking unisom, I NEVER have any of these intrusive thoughts. If unisom does keep causing intrusive thoughts, I am going to stop taking them and get either Restoril or melatonin.

 1  Trouble falling and staying asleep It did seem to help me fall asleep fast vs diphenhydramine. Problem is I sleep good for about an hour and then I wake up every 45 mins for something to drink, to use the bathroom and feel..the best way to describe it is hangover-ish and this is as little as 2 hrs after taking it like I feel shaky and dizzy. Next day im super tired more than the day before because I woke up 8 or 9 times in the night. It's a shame because it does get me to sleep but it's very short lived and the side effects aren't worth it. Drink some chamomile tea and try kava F 35 6 days

 1  Insomnia I began sweating although I was not hot. This lasted all night long! Do not take this pill. It made me even more anxious and kept me from sleeping once again. I hated the feeling it gave me. It made my eyelids extremely heavy yet I still couldn’t sleep. I also was having a tight feeling in my chest. It made my throat/mouth feel so dry that I couldn’t sleep either. F 18 1 days
