unisom...help please

Hey gals...i ran out of unisom thinking I could do without it....such an unwise decision ..i spent the day puking.
My mom usually picks it up for me in a neighboring town but she can't bring any till friday. I went to our local stores and found a freds brand sleep aid -compare to unisom type thing..but I want to be sure its the same stuff. Can someone look on their box and tell me if this is comparable?

Doxylamine succinate 25mg

Inactive ingrediants:
Diacalcium phosphate
Magnesium stearate
Microcrystalline cellulose
Sodium starch glycolate

Thanks !

So a little different but what you have might work. Fingers crossed for you! I weaned myself down to half a unisom and hopefully I can kick it soon.

Thanks ladies!
I have been down to a half for awhile and thought I could do without....i wonder if it would level out if I stayed away from it. It's better today than it was yesterday. I wonder if your body gets dependant on it?

That's what I was wondering and I asked my midwife. She said to go down to half and stay there for a week and then try three days in a row with out. It takes 3 days for your body to adjust to most things. I am going to try going with out this weekend.

Okay, so I am a real wimp! I still take a full tablet and will for the whole pregnancy if needed! I have spent my 1st 3 pregnancies VERY sick ALL 9 months and am very willing to take something until I give birth if it means that I won't be sick! So proud of you ladies that are weaning yourself off the medication! Wish I had the strength!

It has nothing to do with strength you NEED it! Being sick that much would be so hard on your body, anything that can help is worth doing. I am just to the point now where I get sick once or twice a week instead of once or twice a DAY so I am thinking I might be able to do without

HAHA! Well, that's the thing... I haven't been nearly as sick as I had been with my other pregnancies! Those I puked 10+ times a day ON medication. This time I was extremely nauseous but not puking very often. Part of the difference I think was diet going into the pregnancy and then starting on meds as soon as I started feeling the slightest bit sick. I still wish I could comfortably stop taking them! I really shouldn't be so hard on myself... I am down to taking 4 mg of zofran once a day if that... as long as I take my zantac, I am good until evening when the nausea kicks in high gear and I take the unisom/b6 combo.

Thank you for your encouragement!!
