I studied tons of Melatonin, looking for Timed Release, as well as the 3mg dosage, and then also without horrible fillers and junk. Decided on the Natrol. It's ingredient list wasn't too objectionable to me...as some had filler ingredients that I try to stay away from. First, you should study up on Melatonin. It's not just for sleeping. It's an immune system and inflammation regulator amongst many things. Some doctors reports I read say they have treated and eliminated autoimmune disease in their practices with it.... Anyway, 3 mg is considered the max dose and the dose I wanted to try. If you get headaches or depression, then you need to drop to 2 or 1 mg. But 3mg has been perfect for me. Knocks me out and I am sleeping ALL night. Oddly, I go to sleep on my back and wake up on my back...never moving. I also don't remember dreams, which I miss.... Melatonin is apparently known for making you dream crazy dreams but I am sleeping so hard I don't remember any dreams at all. Also, I used to get up 2-3 times at night to urinate. Now, the melatonin makes me sleep through the full bladder....and so I awake with a really full bladder... but at least I am sleeping and can tell a difference in my energy level during the day. Timed release is key.... Also, be careful, the first night I took it, I did get up to the bathroom and was so woosy I nearly fell over. It wasn't a drunk feeling; it was an equilibrium feeling... I do take it right before lying down though, because if you take it earlier and it hits before you are in bed, it makes my eyes so heavy and tired, it's like a headache. So I'd rather take it and immediately get in bed and let it hit me there.

Being a normal dose slow release supplement suppose the aim of this is to keep you asleep once you do manage to get to sleep. If you do, that is, because this pill does not help you fall asleep at all. I overlooked that it contains Vit B aswell. That wakes me up! Who's bright idea was this? Avoid.

i suffer from waking up early in the morning and having a hard time going back to sleep. i bought this product because of all its good review i read here, and tried it for the first time last night. to say that i'm disappointed will be an understatement. THE PRODUCT KEPT ME UP ALL NIGHT!! instead of just "not helping" my problem it made it worse! if i could return this to iherb i would. i really don't know why this happened. i really have no trouble falling asleep but last night i just couldn't. it was horrible. beware.

If like me your sleep issues are rooted in gut issues you will want to avoid the new Natrol melatonin which includes maltodextrin, which causes intestinal permeability.

I find these tablets make me feel incredibly drowsy for quite some time in the morning. Other melatonin tablets I have tried have never done this. Might have to try an instant release tablet again. I can't continue with this one.

I have taken another brand of Melatonin and had good results, but with this brand, I feel like it's just not doing anything. Doubting the quality for sure!

Like most of the buyers after reading all the positive reviews on this pills I decided to try them too. It did make me feel sleepy at first take but nothing special. I didn't sleep better or longer but actually when I wake up I felt tiredness and my eye pupils were widened throughout the day and I didn't feel very well overall so I stopped taking them. It happened every time I took the pill. Waste of money for me.

To me this product is the worst. I took it upon the reviews here. Few weeks back I tried it for the first time and one more time afterwards both times it let me down. Yesterday, I decided to give it one last chance before I can write my review so by 1 am I was already sleepy but because I can't get more than 6 hours lately I sayed let me try it for the last time it might work but unfortunately now its 11:30 in the morning and since 1 am I couldn't fall asleep Im just laying down here for more than 10 hours having 0 hour sleep and feeling super dizzy that I cant step out of the bed !! Actually my sleep is way better without it. It can't even be compared to panadol night which can give me 9 decent hours of sleep . This products is really bad all what it does is just keeping you dizzy and it never makes you fall asleep even if you spend all your day in bed. سيء والأسوأ بالنسبة لي ومانصح احد ياخذه جربته ثلاث مرات وبكل المرات فشل صار لي عشر ساعات بالسرير بس مانمت ولا دقيقة قاعده زي اللي مغمى علي مو قادره اتحرك برا السرير من الدوخه بدونه اقدر انام من ٦ل٧ ساعات اما معاه ولاا حتى ساعه

ive been taking melatonin 3 mg for about 3 years, at my state its very expensive so i decided to try this because of the great reviews and the low price. after 2 weeks of taking the pill, it only made my sleepibg problem worse, woke up every night at 2 am and couldnt go back to sleep. my mom responded to the pill same as me.i recommend people who already took melatonin to stay on their regular pill.
