    Pros: Very powerful and effective
    Cons: Can leave you feeling groggy the next day

    Summary: I discovered Unisom a few years ago during a prolonged bout with insomnia. I had been using various diphenhydramine-based OTC sleeping pills, which made me feel weirdly jittery if I didn't fall asleep quickly enough after taking them. Unisom SleepTabs ... read more

    Pros: Good sound sleep; good dreams!
    Cons: Too much = wake up groggy; may exacerbate tinnitus.

    Summary: I discovered Unisom over three years ago, and it was truly a life saver! My high-stress job, coupled with a caffeine habit, caused me to experience a collision between my late-nights and my mind/body's need for good sleep! Worry over intense ... read more

    Pros: Very sound and natural feeling sleep. No dizzy feeling and no hangover.
    Cons: None

    Summary: Unisom Sleep Tabs is the only product that uses Doxylamine Succinate to induce sleep. Every other product including Unisom Gel Tabs uses Diphenhydramine. So those of you comparing Tylenol PM to others are just kidding yourselves in thinking there is a ... read more

    Pros: Worked eventually, but not for very long
    Cons: Side effects not listed in packaging

    Summary: I purchased Unisom for the first (and last) time to help me sleep through a red-eye flight from LA to Boston. While the pill did not work as quickly as advertised (took 1.0 to 1.5 hours to fall asleep), this is a secondary concern. Of primary concern ... read more

    Pros: Works fairly quickly.  Helps with some pregnancy nausea when combined with vitamin B6.
    Cons: Possible dry mouth the next morning.  Can leave you foggy/sleepy the next day.

    Summary: So, I was spending a good half each day nauseated and puking from morning sickness.  I kept stepping up the scale of recommended-things-to-try: sea-bands, ginger, small meals, gatorade, B6.  Finally, I tried 1/2 a unisom tab with 25 mg. of ... read more
