I read a lot some guys in this forums use melatonin for better sleeping.
Sadly we dont have any melatonin on my national pharmaceutical market
and I have to order it from an international pharmacy. I wanna give it a try.

Whats your dosage in mg you take?
Daily intake or when needed?
Slow release or immediate release?

Does anyone have a brand name for me to google the medications guide?

I take melatonin and I find that less is more with it. I only take 3mg and higher amounts really effected me negatively.

Melatonin is a hormone naturally produced by the body. In the US, it is considered a dietary supplement and it is not regulated like a prescription drug.

My experience has been similar to Sarah's, in that higher doses are not necessarily better. I usually take 1-3mg. For a while, I took it nightly, but I have been forgetting lately.

For me, there seems to be a window of time in which it is effective, and if I miss that (i.e., don't go to sleep then), it doesn't do much good. Best if used in conjunction with other "sleep hygiene" (night-time routine).

If you take it too late in the evening, it may mess with your sleep cycle (even worse than it may have been before), so be cautious.

I tried some slow release 2mg melatonine over the last 3 days.
I like it a lot. Same subtle as Vyvanse. I fall better to sleep and
it looks like it also improves my sleep. I dont have a hang over
an get better activated the next day.

Do you have IR or XR melatonine?

My pills are beste before 2013 but are still good. Ouch!

To be exactly I have CIRCADIN 2mg.

It is my third pill now.
Once again it starts working after 15 minutes and will hit me hard after 2 hours.
This looks for me like I also could use 0.5mg Circadin. What do you think?
Do you also feel your melatonin increasing 15min after the intake?

I am not so comfortable to take a hormone and think lowest effective dosage is better.
