I took melatonin for insomnia for about 3 yrs and I recently stopped. After stopping, I'm much more awake during the day, less irritable, and more mentally and physically active. I used to not be able to sleep at all when I wouldn't take it, now a couple months later I've gone back to normal.

I have been taking Melatonin steadily for about 4 yrs. and before that I used it on and off for like 5 yrs. Melatonin has helped me tremendously. I take 2.5mg every night and within 30 minutes I'm out!

My husband & I both took 5mg tablet of melatonin to help us sleep. Neither one of us had good night sleep. The next day I was groggy & sleepy but, did not sleep well during the night.

Comment:
I am surprised at the number of young people taking this hormone. It's use is for people whose melatonin level is low due to old age. I am 84 and have used melatonin for a few yrs.
