It depends on the severity of your sleep disorder. I have used it with little results. Others use it and love it. We have also used Alteril. It contains four natural ingredients, including melatonin and L-Tryptophan which aids with sleep and also helps your body produce more melatonin. Again, I had limited results but everyone else in the house had great results. To kind of put my results into perspective, I take 10mg of Ambiem and still wake up several times a night. In fact, I can take Ambiem and not go to bed. Most people have to take it while already in bed.

As far as I know there are no side effects from taking melatonin.

I'm not positive, but I believe Octo uses melatonin.

chuckle.gif Yeah you should be grateful for that Ghostie. I haven't used melatonin for some time but it has helped me sleep. It's no knock-out pill but helps mellow you out in the evening. I also tried a combo of melatonin and L-tryptophan (which is available at the grocery store) and that worked too. There are no side effects from these as far as I noticed so you can safely try that if you want. I won't hurt you.

It's fine Ghostie, you should have no problems.
Dayumm Kreeper, they gave me Ambian for insomnia a few years ago, withing 10 minutes I was out like a light. Hard to believe you can stay awake on that.

I'm weird like that. Morphine has absolutely no effect on me either.
