I've been on Melatonin for a couple years now and I'm still trying to find the right dose. I've had trouble falling asleep since I was a teen, lying in bed an hour or more before falling asleep.

Comment:
I took this at night time, because my mother made me. She did not review any of the side effects and I doubt that she even thought that it could have a bad reaction with my ADD medication, 40mg Vyvanse in pill form. The Melatonin caused me to stay awake all night, oddly, which is the opposite of what it is supposed to do. Usually, I get around a few hours of sleep, early in the morning, because of ...
