Unisom in Germany?

Postby hirschytunes » Oct 11, 2008 4:33 am

I purchased some Unisom while in the US this summer... unfortunately I purchased the Sleep Gels that people are saying is not what you should use for HG. I had no idea they had different ingredients :( Now we are considering TTC in Dec... but I want to be sure I have what I need on hand... I just can't find anything equivalent to Unisom's Doxylamine here in Germany. Any ideas? :?

You can use the gels, so don't discount your purchase. It's not the same ingredient as regular Unisom tablets, but it can still work against nausea. As for doxylamine, I'm sure someone will chime in with ideas for German equivalent. Have you asked an apothecary? You may find what you're looking for by carefully scanning the sleep-aid and allergy-treatment shelves.

Have you tried asking on that German HG forum that Deb gave you the link for? They may be able to give you some ideas as to where to find it.

hey!

sorry, i didn't see this earlier. if you go to www.psychotropics.dk and search for doxylamine, you'll find various names for it in different countries (BRD = germany) hope that helps!
