Re : Unisom

Post by akemt » Fri Feb 06, 2004 04:22 am

Okay, Bringing this up agian. I started the unisom, 1/2 tablet at night and it didn't do a thing. So, about a week later (maybe less) I went to 1 tablet at night. It seems to help some, but not enough to really know. And I still throw up now and then. Should I change to 1/2 at night 1/2 durring the day? Any ideas/suggestions? I'm hesitant to ask the dr about it at all.

HI.. I am so glad I have you girls.. besides my blood pressure being higher - I NEED TO SLEEP and I am so thankful that unisom is A OK to take at night.. I try to get by with a half.. My SIL tells me she was PRESCRIBED Diclectin (Doxylamine and B6) for her terrible nausea.. well I have no nausea.. maybe the Unisom helps me with that too!![?]

Although every one here already can attest to it's "okness" in pg. I just wanted to put my two cents' worth in on Unisom. It was listed (along with the b-6) on the OK med sheet from my Perinatologist's offce.

I just got the OK for unisom today too...started throwing up [xx(] but not anywhere near hyperemesis, THANK GOODNESS! I'm hoping the unisom is enough to keep me from going anywhere near there!

Funny side-note, I called in and talked to the nurse and asked if unisom was on their "OK while PG" list. Was told no...asked why...and was told "It's not safe in pregnancy!" lol So, she talked to the dr (my new dr) and had to call back and tell me she was wrong. lol Poor woman. I think I was pretty rude to her the first time she and I spoke because that is exactly the way DR. Pain-in-the-batootie[}:)] responded when I talked about all the info I'd read reguarding Pre-e. Probably should have explained that to her!

HI.. thanks so much, I was tossing and turning last night so at about 2am I took a half of the Doxyaline kind of Unisom. I slept well then. I also have no morning sickness, maybe that is why? So it is safe in the first trimester????

I am so glad to have you ladies to talk with on here.

Here is info on using Unisom during pregnancy...
http://www.perinatology.com/exposures/druglist2.htm#Doxylamine
The generic name Doxylamine is the Unisom sleep tabs formula, NOT the sleep gels. Unisom is one of THE most studied drugs in pregnancy and is a category A drug. I have only heard of 2 or 3 (including vitamins) that are cat A.
Take care,

I am just starting my third trimester and called last week for nausea. They said half a unisom every 6 hours as needed and a B-6 a day. Althoug; I elected not, since I have a 17 month running around.
