Could it be harmful to take 2 unisom pills?

Could it be harmful to take 2 unisom pills?

Why do it?: The dose of unisom is 1 pill 30 minutes before bed. Why do you want to double it? You'd be more likely to have dry mouth, constipation, urinary retention, etc (all side effects of the medication) if taking more than the usual dose.

Hi, if take unisom to sleep and get thru 2 bottles of 30 pills in about ten days is there a problem?

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. ...Read more

Last night taking 1 unisom didn't help. I really need to get sleep tonight. Is it safe to take 2 unisom just this once? Will it help?

Last night taking 1 unisom didn't help. I really need to get sleep tonight. Is it safe to take 2 unisom just this once? Will it help?

It's not: Unidom is nothing more than Benadryl (diphenhydramine) and you will regret the hangover tomorrow. You can try other more safe things like melatonin, sleepy time tea, or challenging yourself to reading a long chapter in a tedious book. A routine of exercise will help in making sleep easy. Also no noise or lights or electronics- and make your room cool= sleep hygiene. Take care. ...Read more

One can be "over-medicated" whether with prescription medications or over-the-counter medications, natural or otherwise. But why do you need them? First cut back or stop caffeine. Try and exercise. Have a glass of warm milk. ...Read more
