I have problems getting drowsy enough to make my self go to bed .If I dont want to take a strong sleep-aid like Ambien I take melatonin.I started out with taking 5 and eventually worked my way up to 13 at once.Personally,it works just like any other medication you take over a long period of time.Your body becomes used to it night after nite and you feel required to take more of it.I did notice that it takes no time at all to get to this point so you're better off getting a prescribed sleep-aid like trazodone.
