  • Effectiveness
    Major (for bipolar II disorder)
  • Side effects
    Mild (Excessive daytime sleepiness (somnolence))
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Advice & Tips: Take this before bed when you have insomnia, racing thoughts, or any inability to sleep. It usually acts within 2 hours. Don't take too much, as the sleepiness and grogginess can last 12 to 18 hours. When your sleep returns to normal, stop taking Cypromin. If this antihistamine doesn't make you sleepy, try other brands.
Cost: < $25 monthly
