For Insomnia: "I have trouble sleeping. I don't like taking drugs but find after missing 2-3 nights in a row I have to take something. A friend (battling cancer) told me Melatonin helped her. I have taken it 3 nights in a row and slept 10 hrs, 6 hrs and 8 hrs. BUT I seem to be drowsy midday and need a nap as soon as I get home. So going to stop for a few nights and then try half a tablet"

For Insomnia: "I have extreme insomnia my Dr has prescribed every Medication for Insomnia either I had bad reactions to it or didn't help at all so yesterday My Dr prescribed OTC Melatonin I took one pill 3 mg I had a very restful 5-6 hrs~I'm going to try 1/2 of a Pill to to get a full night sleep~I'll see how a 5 mg dose will work~but I was just happy that the 3mg gave me a restful few hrs. I'll report if the 1 1/2 Pills helps me stay asleep for 8 hrs. Right now I'm Thankful that I actually went to sleep and had a few good hrs of rest & sleep. No side effects !"

For Insomnia: "My dose is 2mg nightly 1 hour before sleep. It has been 3 weeks so far. I have suffered from parasomnia ever since I can remember. I also suffer anxiety at night because of it. I hallucinate and sleep walk. In the 3 weeks I have hallucinated maybe once or twice and only sleep walked once. Usually it would be every second night. I get to sleep so much quicker. My mind doesn't race and I am so much more relaxed. I sleep so much deeper. I am no longer afraid of sleeping!"

For Insomnia: "Had trouble going to sleep primarily due to anxiety and irregular work schedule. Prescription medications made me hard to wake up and hungover the next day. Now I take 2.5. mg about an hour before bedtime and go right to sleep and awake refreshed. It also has helped with my ED."

For Insomnia: "So I've been ill for 16 yrs, autoimmune, so needless to say insomnia is part of the equation here, since I don't absorb anything properly I take is liquid or sublingual. I take 3mg sublingual dots they work like a charm, if it's a bad night I take 2. But that's just me. Also the blue light on your cell and Desktop computer lowers your Melatonin and causes you to lose sleep. Look for an app to filter that out that should help tremendously... sweet dreams"

For Insomnia: "I took this last night for the first time as I have had 2-3 months of bad sleep. Waking up and staying awake few hours after falling asleep. I took a 10mg, not really reading about it before. It was way too much for me, I slept, absolutely, but wanted to sleep whole day, now, 24 hours later I still feel very very sleepy! Will take it again but will break up the pills in quarters now if possible. I got the advice to take it with warm, sweetened milk an hour before bedtime."

For Insomnia: "I am a 18 year old girl,and since I was 13 I only take melatonin on nights when my sleeping schedule is messed up or I have anxiety about something and it really does help. Both my mom and brother take it every night - they both have insomnia and anxiety - and they depend on it. They can't sleep without it. I don't want that to happen to me so I only take it every so often when I am in need of it and it really does work."

For Insomnia: "I've had problems falling asleep & staying asleep for years. I was on some prescribed meds for sleep but would wake up out of it in the morning. I take 3 mg, sometime half of a pill & rest all night. It helps me unwind & not lay in bed with my mind racing."

For Insomnia: "I suffered from moderate insomnia for the better part of a decade due to anxiety. I would always fall asleep but it could potentially take hours. It was not unheard of for me to lay down at 11 and get up at 2-3 to watch TV and clear my mind. Ever since I started on melatonin I SWEAR it has been my miracle pill. I still suffer from anxiety so the core of my insomnia is still there. I know that it will work differently for different people so I won't say that a person would be wrong for a lower rating but for me it works, it works, it works! It changed my life."

For Insomnia: "I took the only melatonin in my house at the time which was 5mg. Since school had started I found it really hard to go to bed before 10 and I would just lay in bed waiting. I took this and it really helped me fall asleep but I've been REALLY sleepy ever since. I took it 2 nights ago and I'm still sleepy and its really annoying. I think 5 mg is way too much. I'll only ever take small doses"

For Insomnia: "I take this every night (3mg) in the last few years. It doesn't actually make me sleepy or keep me asleep, but I found it made me relaxed and helped with my anxiety. I take other, stronger medication to actually fall asleep. Overall I think melatonin is worth my money just for the relaxing effect alone. I have never experienced any side effect."

For Insomnia: "Melatonin has kept all of my Tardive syndrome symptoms at bay since the first time I took 3mg of Melatonin for sleep interruptions. I was nicely surprised when I awoke that first morning: my involuntary movements of my jaw, the earaches inside and outside my ears, and the shakiness of my hands (which resulted in very scrawly handwriting)....all had disappeared! The odd time I feel my jaw move just a little and then I take 1/2 tablet of Melatonin. It keeps that symtom and others at bay."

For Insomnia: "I am 43 years old and retired from the Army after 22 years of service. I've had major sleep issues the past couple of years due to my PTSD. I've tried so many different sleep aids and nothing ever worked! My Doctor suggested trying Melantonin 3mg and I was very skeptical! I have been amazed how great I have been sleeping and I feel so refreshed in the mornings!!"

For : "I am a 13 year old boy and I take melatonin because I got a concussion but couldn't fall asleep and couldn't stay asleep. But then I took melatonin and went asleep easier and was able to stay asleep. The only this that bothers me is that I can't sleep without it now. I could lay in bed for hours and not sleep. I take 3 milligrams of melatonin each night (prescribed by my doctor)."

For Insomnia: "Melatonin, once exposed to humidity, is degraded by half. The reason for the mixed responses is never observed nor included in the data. Melatonin is thankfully available in the U.S. Add a silica packet to your bottle"
