Hi, i have used Melatonin in the past with good results. One thing to remember, is that your bedroom needs to be as dark as possible, this will help the Melatonin work most efficiently. Wear a sleep mask if you can. You can get it in various strengths, such as 3mg, 5mg & 6mg. You shouldn't exceed a 6mg dose. It might be a good idea to try 3mg to start with? It may take a little while for it to get in to your system, so if it doesn't work straight away, give it time.
Your partner is likely not sleeping well either. Are they snoring or just restless? Sometimes this can be caused by sleep apnea. The lack of oxygen causes them to move about and kick. Your partner probably needs a sleep study to see why they are so restless in their sleep. Once your partner is sleeping, you should be able to sleep too!
