I tried 3-6 mg and it did not help me sleep consistently . I tried 12 mg and I slept, but woke up groggy and had a headache during the day. Went back to 6 mg and found if I take it around 10 pm, I will fall asleep, but still wake up for awhile around 2 or 3 am. But at least I am not groggy or have a headache during the day.

I have not slept well in over 10 years. The first night I took the melatonin dual release I was up 3 times but quickly fell back asleep. That has been the pattern over the past week. I have had no issues getting up in the morning anymore. I have not been exhausted and I am back in the gym. It has been a lifesaver for me.

Comment:
Since a child, I have had insomnia. I have taken presription sleep aids for years, some of them needing increasing doses. Using Melatonin enables me to stay at a low dose of my other medication, never needing to increase it. My brother and sister take it alone and find it very effective. For me, ordering the CAPSULES works MUCH better than the drug store tablets ( which didn't work at all for ... Show Full Comment
