2.5 mg Melatonin sublingual
under your tougue
1/2 hour before going to bed.
I use 'Source Naturals' brand. I purchase it at health food stores.
This works best for me.

Yes, this is a very good idea. I use a cheap drug store brand and it is very effective. Just 1 tablet per 24 hr period is recommended. However, you have to make an effort to relax(meaning you should lay down afterwards).It will not knock you out like benadryl but its naturally effective. Somehow, even if I don't take it I fall asleep the same time I took it the day before..weird! :)

Melatonin tablets work. Probably the best home remedy on the market. Go to any reputable health food store and you are set. As good as Benedryl but not a man made chemical. It is 100% natural. It is made in our bodies and some of us just need a boost.

Melatonin is very good for insomnia. Source Naturals also has a liquid form that I like because you can control the amount you take, from one drop to droppersful.

Less is better than more in your system, and I find that if you lower your dose to let's say 1/2 mg., it'll work just as well as 3mg did, because it tends to build up and stay within the body. Great for 'jet lag' too!

I love this stuff! I was on prescription after prescription sleeping aids, none of them worked as well as this, and none of them even came close to the price, I tried this about a year ago as kind of a last resort when the pills weren't working, they haven't failed me yet :)

Melatonin works but...it *can* cause nightmares. It did for me and then, I read about this possible side effect online.

Yeh same here. I took it for less then a week and i had nightmares everyday for atleast a month...and im bloody 25. This stuff is not good at all.

The melatonin definitely put me to sleep, but i had a bad headache the next day. I'm not sure if the 2 are related. I didn't know about the nightmares, but my son has complained about have bad dreams but usually about Spongebob so again, im not sure if the 2 are related. Yea my review kinda sucks, but it does make you sleep. :-)
