I take 6mg of meatonin every night with 2 tylenol pm. I have on occassion left off the tylenol pm and don't sleep as well. How much melatonis is effective? I heard if you take too much you won't sleep. How much is too much? What is the required amt. I get melotonin from Wallgreens--"finest".

I was having no luck with Ambien or Trazadone anymore, so decided to try Melantonin - 3 mg. It worked the first night and for the past week. Just hope it continues. What a blessing!

Comment:
I was told by my doctor to try melatonin as a sleep aid option. At first it was great but recently i have been getting extremely vivid and abnormal nightmares only wheni take the pill. I have stopped because i always wake up from them uneasy and harder to get asleep. Im sure this varies from person to person.
