Put me to sleep really fast but I'm very foggy in the morning... I still feel tired. Only use if you have nothing planned for the next day.

This medicine really helped me go to sleep. But it had major side effects. First I was in a "fog" the entire next day after taking it. But the major problem was I experienced abnormal grumpiness the next day too. After realizing these symptoms appeared at the same time that I bagan taking Unisom, I quit taking it and the symptoms went away immediately. So no more Unisom for me!!
