    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!!

    Horrible! Didn't even make me tired, and I was tired before I took it! Took one around midnight, still awake at 1am (and I was just lying in bed, eyes closed, dark room, trying my hardest to sleep and was still wide awake) .... Took another at 1:15am, another hour and a half goes by and still NOTHING! At this point I'm extremely frustrated considering I had to get up for work very early. I ... Show Full Comment
