In brief: Yes

The FDA approved, label dosages for insomnia are from 25-50 mg nightly.
We use this medication off-label routinely to treat morning sickness in pregnant women at higher doses than this. Overall it is a very safe and well tolerated medication. It can cause urinary retention in older people with prostate or bladder issues though.
