Have questions?


The caps are made out of plastic. We are currently exploring using a plant-based plastic for these so that they can be recycled.

Cabinet pouches are made of 100% earth digestible (compostable) materials, specifically wood cellulose and biomaterials. They are also certified 100% backyard compostable and can be brought to local industrial or commercial composting facilities.

Cabinet refill pouches are made from wood cellulose and other biomaterials, all of which are 100% earth digestible. The pouches are back yard compostable, certified Lomi Approved, and municipal and industrial compostable (ASTM D6400).

You can buy our refillable bottles! Here is a link to where you can find them.


We know how important it is to know what you're putting inside your body. Please visit this link for a PDF of full drug facts for Cabinet Sleep Aid.

It is important to check in with your doctor or healthcare provider before taking Cabinet Sleep Aid if you have:

  • A breathing problem, such as emphysema or chronic bronchitis

  • Glaucoma

  • Trouble urinating as a result of an enlarged prostate gland

If you are currently taking sedatives, tranquilizers, sleeping pills, or any other medications that make you sleepy or have sedative effects, ask a doctor or local pharmacist prior to taking any tablets.

Adults and children over the age of 12 can take one (1) softgel at bedtime as needed for relief of occasional sleeplessness. Do not take more than one (1) dose of Cabinet Sleep Aid in 24 hours, unless your doctor told you to. This product is not to be used by children under the age of 12.

Cabinet Sleep Aid is not recommended for long-term use, and should not be used for more than two weeks straight.

Good to know: While Cabinet Allergy Relief (generic Benadryl generally used for allergies) contains 25 mg of diphenhydramine, Cabinet Sleep Aid (generic Unisom generally used as an OTC sleep medicine) contains 50 mg of diphenhydramine.

Cabinet Sleep Aid, a generic alternative to Unisom®, is a popular over-the-counter sleep aid (OTC sleep aid) used to relieve sleeplessness. The active ingredient, diphenhydramine hcl, belongs to a group of medications called antihistamines. Antihistamines work by blocking the action of histamine, which is a substance in the body that causes allergic symptoms and reactions. Some antihistamines, such as diphenhydramine, can enter the brain and cause drowsiness. This side effect is what allows for diphenhydramine to be a great occasional, non-habit forming sleep aid. In addition to helping with sleep, Cabinet Sleep Aid also works to relieve symptoms of allergy such as runny nose, sneezing, watery eyes. This product can provide relief for occasional sleeplessness, but is not used for long-term treatment of insomnia.

For those with celiac disease or a gluten intolerance, we know how hard it can be to find safe medications and products you can trust. Cabinet is the first healthcare company to conduct batch-level quality testing through a 3rd party lab for carcinogens, gluten, and purity. This ensures that every batch of medicine that goes to market is high quality and free of harmful ingredients.

Cabinet Sleep Aid is certified gluten-free and 100% free from known carcinogens. You can view our 3rd party certificate of analysis at this link.

For the curious consumer: Batch-level testing is not common practice among manufacturers. A great example of the lack of testing in this space is the massive Zanac (randitidine) recall in 2019 and 2020. Manufacturers recalled ranitidine (both brand and generic) after a cancer-causing chemical called N-Nitrosodimethylamine (NDMA) was discovered in every medicine lot.

I love the refillable glass bottles! The snap lid on the top ensures I know what to take and how often, plus the stacking saves sooo much room.

Melissa S.

The medicine took care of my headache and I love that it's environmentally friendly. The bottles stack seamlessly, helping me clear out my cluttered cabinet full of various sized and shaped plastic bottles.

Becky H.

This is so much better than drug store bought medications. No plastic, cheaper refills, stackable and color coded containers containers take up less space. Cabinet makes me feel like I am helping save the environment and saves me money!

    I love everything about the Cabinet design and system, but what really makes it special for me is minimally designed packaging. Clean, simple, feels good to hold and open, feels good to look at. Almost all packaging is an orgy of text and color that kind of takes a shit on your living space. Imagine if our couches and chairs and wallpaper looked like that! Anyway, I love it. I've been waiting for something like this for years.
