YES: YES...although Unisom is a relatively "safe" anti-histamine you need to see your Medical Professional for some information re "sleep hygiene" and perhaps a SHORT term "real" sleeping aid! Hope this helps Dr Z

Yes!: This is a MUCH higher dose than is recommended and could be dangerous for your body to process. You will also likely develop a tolerance at the very least and find it takes more and more to have any effect. See your PCP to discuss other sleep meds, avoid alcohol and caffeine too late in the day, limit "screen time" before bed, make sure your bedroom is cool, dark, and quiet.
