I have been taking one unisom tablet along with one 50 mg tablet of Vitamin B-6 since my sixth week of pregnancy due to terrible nausea, vomitting, and insomnia. I am now 16 weeks pregnant and my doctor said I needed to stop the unisom and instead try Benadryl as a safer remedy for the the insomnia. As of last week, the nausea/vomitting returned after 2 days of not taking the unisom/b-6 combination and the insomnia returned the first night. Is it safe to take Unisom everyday throughout the pregnancy if necessary, not only for the first trimester? I have had insomnia since the beginning of this pregnancy and it does not look to be improving at all in my second trimester. It doesn't look like the nausea is lessening either. Please help.
Consult with your physician. You should take what works for you and you can take the unisom and vitamin B6 until the day you deliver if you need it.
