Unison: Unisom is safe to take during pregnancy. It is a category b drug. Originally intended as an anti-nausea/anti-emetic (vomiting) drug it made people so sleepy that it became well known as a sleep aid. Have a great baby.

Based on the article: Below, unisom which contains melatonin is not recommended during pregnancy because it affects the hormone levels and may cause developmental defects in the fetus. Ask your oby for safer alternatives. Best wishes! http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/melatonin/ns_patient-melatonin/dsection=safety.
