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.

I didn´t think these would work, but oh, was I wrong. One pill is enough, and after 20-25 minutes I feel this drowsiness come along. Before I started taking these pills, I watched tv for hours before I could sleep, and if I woke up in the middle of the night, I couldn´t sleep in again. That is not a problem anymore

These have really helped me get my sleep patterns back into line, and help with my occasional insomnia.

It came quickly. Melatonin helps to fall asleep quickly. But at night I sometimes wake up. I think it is from the pain of arthritis.

Does the job but leaves a slight headache when you wake up the next day. At least for me it does.

After using this for two weeks with the Metabolic Advantage I am definitely feeling more awake and alert. Just don't take them close together as they counteract each other. I'm sleeping better and more peacefully. Even if just six hours at times it's a better quality six hours sleep.
