Started taking this during a very stressful time that was affecting my sleep, took 1mg, had wonderful dreams, that 1mg kick my sleeping back in shape, I take one 1mg maybe once a week as I believe melatonin deceases as one ages. The 1mg seems to stay in my system for days. Don't need it to sleep anymore,I use a lozenge...peppermint flavor.
