The word on the street is that B6 slows milk production and that you should not take doses of it if you are still breastfeeding your youngest... I see she's 2 so you may or may not be! I don't even know what Unisom is!
Hopefully someone else has a better answer for you, that's all I can help you with.

http://motherisk.org/index.jsp has lots of information. I hope you feel better soon.
NOt to scare anyone, but Unisom contains the antihistamine that was in Bendectin, the drug given to pregnant women twenty years ago and taken off of the market for causing birth defects.
Bendectin also contained pyrodoxine hydrochloride (B6). The reason B6 helps your morning sickness is because it helps with your body's digestion and utilization of proteins, which combats the nausea and eases the blood glucose levels.
Bendectin was manufactured by the same drug company in Cincinnati, OH that made Thalidimide over forty years ago, Merrill-Dow. My nephew worked as a clerk on the lawsuit. He said they spent lots of $ on the case.
I say try some fresh grated ginger or rubus strigosus (red raspberry leaf) tea.
