What You Should Know About This Product

Dornomyl is a sleeping aid product that is said to have delivered insomnia relief to over 30 million people in the course of many years. Now available in its original strength without a prescription, Donormyl contains 25 milligrams of Doxylamine Succinate and is produced by a company called Arizona Pharmaceuticals, which was founded in Phoenix and is now based in California. Their manufacturing facilities have received GMP (good manufacturing) certification.

One bottle of Dornomyl costs $39.99 and includes 96 capsules, so it covers more than three months of daily use. Full company contact information is listed for consumer questions and concerns. While Dornomyl is available for purchase directly from the official website, it does not appear to be secure, but is powered by Yahoo!.

Ingredients Contained In The Product

Doxylamine Succinate 25mg.

Product Features


The Dornomyl website states that its active ingredient, Doxylamine Succinate, was approved by the FDA for over-the-counter usage in treating sleep problems in 1978. A study is mentioned that showed Doxylamine Succinate to be more effective than Barbituate Phenobarbital, a prescription sedative. Additionally, it is claimed that Dornomyl works as quickly as within 30 minutes and helps to maintain a sleeping state that lasts for up to 7 hours. Children under 12 are advised not to use Donormyl. It is advised that a doctor is consulted before use by people with breathing problems, glaucoma sufferers, those with enlarged prostrate glands, and women who are pregnant or breast feeding.

The makers of Dornomyl do not present further studies, customer reviews, a FAQ section, a full ingredient list, or an explanation of what Doxylamine Succinate is and how it works. Also, there are a few functional issues with the website layout.


  • FDA approved ingredient
  • Has been around for decades
  • Available without a prescription
  • Works quickly
  • Inexpensive
  • Full company contact information, GMP certified


  • There is no mention of a guarantee
  • Only one clinical study briefly mentioned
  • Only the active ingredient is listed and it is not explained
  • Website layout problems
  • No testimonials


While Arizona Pharmaceuticals appears to be a reputable company that has been around for a while and is GMP certified, it would be more encouraging if they put more effort into how they present their product. There is absolutely no explanation of what Doxylamine Succinate, nor how it works, which is very troubling. Also, they do not list the other ingredients, such as pill casing composition, which is important information for vegans or those with allergies. Although it is affordable and said to be FDA certified, it would be far more reassuring if there were more clinical studies and customer testimonials presented.
