Can't live without it!
I used to get so frustrated by my inability to sleep through the night. I usually don't have a problem falling asleep but staying asleep was impossible. Someone told me about melatonin so I tried it. What a difference! I rarely ever have a problem since I started taking these. A couple of nights I actually thought maybe I didn't need it anymore, so I decided not to take it. Well, I was wrong! I can't sleep without it. It definitely works and I don't feel any after effects in the morning.

Good product
I've had severe sleep disorders for years. Insomnia, apnea. I've been taking this product for a few months. I checked to find out about any side effects and found some possibles, like headaches upon waking, sluggish throughout the day. I have on occasion had headaches when I wake up, but I've had these for years with sleep disorders. And I have far fewer of them since taking melatonin.

The product doesn't knock me out, I take it the same time every night even if I don't get to bed on time. I sleep much better and throughout the night. I still wake up sometimes at night, but readily fall back to sleep. I am much more awake upon rising, and not nearly as tired throughout the day. (I used to fall asleep during the day, every day.)

I've even actually quit using it for a while to make sure there were no withdrawal symptoms and have not noticed any.

One thing I have noticed since taking this, is I have very vivid dreams and actually remember most. Not sure if this is the product or not, I suspect it is. But it's nice to dream. Before, it was always nightmares (because of low oxygen, etc.).

Another thing I was concerned with was depression - I've suffered from it with sleep disorders. I have not had a problem. I also take several other vitamins, and that may have helped too.

It hasn't completely 'cured' sleep disorders, but it has definitely improved my sleep. And I like the fact that this is all natural with no animal products.

Hello, I'm scared of flying and I was wondering if this could knock me out during the flight so I can be comfortable? I know there are stronger drugs but I'd like one that is completely natural...

Can I take melatonin every night for several years? Are there some long-term side effects?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2013
BEST ANSWER: According to the National Library of Medicine, melatonin isn't very effective for helping you to stay asleep. Valerian is a bit more effective than melatonin, though it can take up to 4 weeks before you begin to see real results. Used in combination, you may achieve better results. Long term use of either substance hasn't been analyzed effectively, though both are considered safe when used while under the care of your medical professional.
