OK: This will be ok. Your body uses B6 very efficiently, and it eliminates what is not needed through urine.

The ingredients in Unisom + B6 are also in medication for nausea in pregnancy called Diclegis.

Careful!!!: Are you 1st trimester? The extra B6 will do nothing for you. Very large doses of B6 have caused permanent nerve damage. Unisom is OK in pregnancy and might help nausea. BUT IT IS ALSO A SLEEPING PILL. Be careful when you take it and do not drive. It could make you dopey when added to your 2 psych meds.
