Can You Take Unisom Sleep Tab With Melatonin
What's zzzquil?: Are you talking about Nyquil (over the counter)? The reaction between them is to increase sleepiness. I recommend against that combo. Melatonin's more SPECIFIC for sleep induction than Nyqil which puts you out due to its side effects. Ask your doctor for a good therapeutic dose of the melatonin first. BTW. how about figuring out why the insomnia 1st? Forget ZZTop. or whatever. ...Read more

I've taken 5mg of melatonin tonight. Can I take nyquill to help me sleep? Melatonin isn't working..
Yes: The antihistamine in NyQuil (doxylamine succinate) will provide the side effect of drowsiness. Like all antihistamines if it works tonight for sleep you develop quick tolerance to it as a sleep aide. Also, if you don't need the other ingredients, I would avoid taking NyQuil just as a sleep aide.

Thoughts..: Valerian, has the possibility of causing some drowsiness, so i would be careful when taking that with benadryl, (diphenhydramine) which can also cause drowsiness.

But like almost all the supplements out there, they haven't been rigorously tested for safety and interactions so it's buyer beware. ...Read more

I have severe insomnia caused by lexapro. What can I take together to make me sleep: zzzquil, nyquil, benadryl, (diphenhydramine) melatonin, clonidine?
Call doctor: In my practice, with my patients, I have rarely seen anyone develop severe insomnia because of lexapro (escitalopram).

Ambien (zolpidem): I believe you're referring to fiorinal with codeine. It is not a good idea to mix narcotics and sleeping medication, such as Codeine and ambien (zolpidem). This could result in the sedation and possible respiratory depression. Additionally both drugs are metabolized by the liver and could cause liver damage. Make sure that your prescribing doctor knows that you're taking both medications and discuss it thoroughly with your prescribing physician. ...Read more
