For Insomnia "I have taken half a tablet of doxylamine succinate (Sleep Aid), in the evening, for about 3 years now. I originally took it for migraines, but discovered quickly, how it made me very drowsy after about 2 hours. It has NEVER failed to work. Taking a whole tablet made me sleep for 10-12 hours, now I get my 8 hours every night with half the dose. It is one of the safest antihistamines on the market. I experimented a few months ago, by not taking one, & I couldn't get to sleep, plus I got restless legs. So now I take it every night."

For Insomnia "I use to wake 4 + times a night with hot flushes. So I started using half a tablet but found I was still waking . For the last 30 nights I've been taking one whole tablet and rarely waking. I get a good 8-10 hours sleep and haven't had one hot flush since taking the tablet. I also have great vivid dreams. I look forward to sleeping now. Some mornings I feel a little washed out but after a coffee I'm good to go."

For Insomnia "I was finding before I took sleep aid from Costco I would fall asleep but could not stay asleep. Now with just one before bedtime (usually 20 to 30 min) I fall asleep, stay asleep and have incredible dreams. Very vivid, sometimes detailed dreams. Best part is, I wake up, and feel great. Sleep is so important. The only reason I am giving it a 9, instead of 10, sometimes I get a little dizzy if I do have to take a night time trip to the BR."

For Insomnia "I've been having problems with going to sleep at night for awhile now and saw unisom advertised on a commercial so I decided to try something for the first time ... I would say it kicked in about a hour after taking it - I still went to bed late just not as late as usual ... I slept the whole night through but in the mornings I would be more tired and still in bed until a little after 1 pm ... Not a morning person but I hate getting up that late after 11 is too late for me but I still be in bed tired - So that's my only problem!"

For Insomnia "Works okay. I do not get the same "restless leg" issues with this as I have with other over the counter pain medicines."
