What is Doxylamine Succinate?

Doxylamine succinate is clinically proven and FDA approved to help you fall asleep 33% faster.1 Unisom SleepTabs is the only leading over-the-counter sleep-aid brand that uses this ingredient. Doxylamine succinate is a non-habit forming antihistamine that blocks certain natural substances (histamine, acetylcholine) that your body makes.3 The lack of histamine causes you to get drowsy and fall asleep quicker. As a result, you’ll get a good night’s sleep.
