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. It really helps but I keep the dosage LOW. I increased it to 2 mg from 1 mg and notice that it's working like a diuretic so I'll go back to my 1mg dose. I don't know WHY people who are in their 20's ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Had been taking small dose of Xanax for several years which had been prescribed by my doctor. After discussing with several post-menopausal women who had success with Melatonin for insomnia, I decided to try it. It was very effective immediately. the 3 mg pill was too much and made me groggy, so I cut it in half and that was sufficient for a good night's sleep.

I was waking up each night after 3 hours of sleep. A friend suggested taking melatonin. It took about a week before it began working well but now I get 7 hours of restful sleep. Occasionally, I will wake with a slight headache but it always passes within a half hour. GREAT stuff and inexpensive!!
