ydresback1; No do not use Unisom on someone with dementia. It will just cause more confusion with that person. The best thing to do is to call the primary care doctor and get a prescription for a low dose sleeping pill. Any medication that you use is going to cause a little more confusion, but at least if it is a prescription then your Dr. will know what to do. Good luck
