For Insomnia: “I love Unisom Sleep Gels. I can't go to sleep and then can't stay asleep. This has fixed that with no grogginess next morning, no matter if you sleep 4 or 5 hours or 8 or 9 hours and feel the same. No hallucinations or anything. Best yet it's over the counter and cheap.”
For Insomnia: “I really like Unisom SleepGels. I work at night, so sometimes I have difficulty sleeping mornings. They help me get the sleep I need, with no grogginess. And I only take them when I'm too hyped up to go to sleep, but I need to sleep. ”
For Insomnia: “I’ve taken two 50mg pills and I am wide awake, other sleeping medications have done a way better job but they eventually stopped working which is why I switched brands to see if it’d help, I feel like I wasted money”
For Insomnia: “I have extreme insomnia and I've taken everything that's is suppose to help you sleep since I was 14yrs old. Please see a professional for your insomnia because OTC sleep aids don't work most of time n you can do damage to ur internal organs by taking more n more. Lunesta BEST EVER!”
For Insomnia: “Started taking these Unisom sleep gel a year ago. Very effective. I was taking them only Sunday night through Thursday night. I noticed I was getting very nauseous on the weekends and couldn’t pinpoint why. I felt amazing throughout the week. Horrible on weekends. Found out it was because I wasn’t taking them on weekends. Now I have to take them every night I am very worried it will get me sick. But the nausea is so bad.”
For Insomnia: “This medication works well if taken as directed for your insomnia and for no longer than about 1 month. I began taking 1-50mg twice a week which worked very well but I continued to increase the dosage every 2 weeks. It did make me tired enough to fall right to sleep after about 45 minutes of taking it and with no drowsiness the following morning. ”
For Insomnia: “At first I thought I found the perfect drug, I slept finally! But the side effects for are pretty much there. (Dizzy, blurred vision, strange emotions, anxiety) and after every use they are getting stronger.”

For Insomnia: “Helps me fall asleep fast but the side effects are insane. I usually get around 7 hours of sleep and every time I take this pill it makes me feel super dizzy and weird in the morning. Also one day in class I either experienced micro sleep or passed out for a solid 2 seconds but it was scary and I’m almost positive it was due to this softgel pill.”
For Insomnia: “Little (miniscule) help with insomnia, but BAD BAD side effects. In the morning very tired, groggy, not able to function normally. The morning feels like I am recovering from some illness. The worst sleep medicine ever!!!!”
For Insomnia: “Tried this after my new Dr took me off of Ambien that I'd been on for 3 1/2 years by a sleep Dr for my insomnia, I can stay wide awake for up to 48 hours & then if I do fall asleep only get between 2-6 hours of sleep. New Dr thinks I'm depressed BUT I'm far from that & keeps wanting to put me on depression medicine!! Called sleep Dr back in Iowa to tell new Dr here in Louisiana that I have insomnia which she did BUT new Dr doesn't believe sleep specialist!!”
