Adderall, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and generic unisom sleep tabs are ok to all be taken together?

Adderall, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and generic unisom sleep tabs are ok to all be taken together?

Yes, But Why?: Medically, there should not be an issue with taking these at normal doses.

Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) is likely to make it more difficult for you to fall asleep, which would counteract the use of unisom. ...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

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
