Unisom is used for treating occasional sleeplessness and reducing difficulty falling asleep. Unisom is an antihistamine. It works by depressing the central nervous system (brain) to produce drowsiness.
Use Unisom as directed by your doctor.
- Unisom may be taken with or without food.
- Take at least 30 minutes before bedtime to help fall asleep.
- If you miss a dose of Unisom and you are taking it regularly, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Unisom.
