I take this time released 10 mg tablet at bedtime every night and I get a great night's sleep that is refreshing. You will also get vivid dreaming at first, which means your body is actually getting the deep sleep periods it needs to repair itself and your subconscious mind will also be working things out toward increasing your mental clarity. This is the perfect compliment for Natrol's DHEA 50mg tablet which gives you the alertness and energy for the day, and which is taken upon getting up in the morning. These two hormones are meant to follow each other in this way...as that is how the body produces them.

Well as effective as prescriptive drugs, the best of the melatonine I have tried.

I seem to fall asleep quicky but I don't think the timed release part works or I would stay asleep....

I was advised by my psychiatrist to try melatonin to help me readjust my body clock from a fully nocturnal existence to a more work/study-friendly daytime routine (instead of risking building a reliance on sleeping tablets.) I got these, and look - I have no idea if 10 mg is a therapeutic dose or not. But they seem to work for me. If I take one and hop into bed, I don't necessarily notice an effect, but if I take one and then continue to study/etc, I will find myself becoming very drowsy within 30 minutes or so. So for that purpose, I say they work! I don't recommend mixing with sleeping tablets though, as I did one night when I was quite desperate to sleep early due to needing to get up early - I was very groggy the next day! It was not fun.

I like this one as it keeps me asleep the whole night (slow release formula, before I used to wake up at 3.00am and could not fall asleep again

Awesome product, it works as indicated, within 30mins of taking it, I start to feel sleepy and wake up feeling so awesome the next morning. A good night sleep is very important, since your body will repair itself during sleep, regulate all your hormones. Trust me a good night sleep does wonder for your energy, mood and overall outlook of life. It is an life changing experience. Just reach out now and click Add to Cart, you will not regret it. And this is the first time I wrote a review for a product that I only took once. It is that awesome.

Was quite good but not strong enough for me but great for my teenage kids when they have too many late nights or after my daughter comes off night shift.

Excellent service; still waiting for the full effects of th tablets, but it's complicated by other health issues I have. Good product. Good service.

Having had insomnia for over 10 years and relying on sleeping tablets to fall asleep, I was very impressed with how effective this was. After taking it before bed, I'd start to drift off within 10 to 15 minutes. What surprises me about this, is that it kept me a sleep through out the night, something sleeping tablets failed to do. I found the 10mg a little too much for me (still felt drowsy the next day), so I've cut the tablet in half and found it perfect. Next time i would buy the 5mg bottle. For anyone who is trying melatonin for the first time, I'd suggest starting on a lower dose before increasing to 10mg. Highly recommend this brand .

I have had trouble getting to and staying asleep for almost twelve months, but since I have found this product my sleep pattern has improved immensely. I take one tablet about half an hour before bed and find I am relaxed enough to have a good nights sleep.
