What is sleep aid?

Unisom 25 mg Tab
Drug Name: DOXYLAMINE - ORAL
Other Brand Names: Unisom
Uses: Doxylamine is an antihistamine. Depending on your product, it may be used to help you fall asleep or used to relieve symptoms of allergy, hay fever, and the common cold. This medication works by blocking certain natural substances (histamine, acetylcholine) that your body makes. This effect causes drowsiness and also helps to relieve allergy/cold symptoms such as watery eyes, runny nose, and sneezing. Cough-and-cold products have not been shown to be safe or effective in children younger than 6 years. Therefore, do not use this product to treat cold symptoms in children younger than 6 years unless specifically directed by the doctor. Doxylamine products used as a sleep aid (such as 25-milligram tablet) are not recommended for use in children younger than 12 years. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for more details about using your product safely. These products do not cure or shorten the length of the common cold and may cause serious side effects. To decrease the risk for serious side effects, carefully follow all dosage directions. Do not use this product to make a child sleepy. Do not give other cough-and-cold medication that might contain the same or similar ingredients (see also Drug Interactions section). Ask the doctor or pharmacist about other ways to relieve cough and cold symptoms (such as drinking enough fluids, using a humidifier or saline nose drops/spray).
