Customer Question

Hi, is unisom safe to take with paxil 20ml?

Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.

Both medications have moderate drug interaction.

So it's advised not to use them together.

Dizziness, drowsiness, and difficulty concentrating, impairment in thinking and judgment can occur when taken them at the same time.

You can take them apart with a gap of 10-12 hours if necessary.

Also avoid driving.

Hope this helps.

Thank you, ***** ***** you recommend for insomnia that paxil causes?

Expert:  Dr. Anil replied 2 years ago.


Well it's good to discuss it with your doctor and if required your doctor may add medication that belong with benzodiazepine group like Dalmone(flurazepam), Halcion(triazolam) and ProSom(estazolam) along with paxil.

You can take Melatonin OTC for sleep.

However it can reduce the efficacy of paxil.

So you can try it only for a short term use.
