Agree with RMS here. There are actually loads of benefits to using higher doses of melatonin. LEF has a great article on it on their site.
I have been experimenting with 10 to even 20 mg of melatonin per night along with a 1-1.5 grams of L-tryptophan per night. No grogginess unless I get less than 7 hours of sleep. No decline in libido..in fact, I would say it's higher. Research and articles on it's GH releasing properties seem to be true..been feeling really good these last few months, staying somewhat lean despite a terrible diet and my skin seems a little younger looking.
No negative sides noticed. No dependency issues noted.

i understand everyone is different so im not trying to place arguements.
- Yes, i have known melatonin is good for GH release.
Maybe ill try a bit higher dose. Ill do some experimenting over the next few weeks and then report back or make a thread. I just get worried about seratonin levels and everything else. I understand it is a good antioxidant and yes, skin improval has been noted in others.
rms, no worrries.

I take 6-9 mg at night and I feel great in the morning. The only problem I run into is sleep eating and walking. The eating part is what I try to avoid. This is just something I've always done whenever I've been in a deep sleep. I also talk in my sleep or so I'm told. So I usually stick to 6 mg.

3 mg is considered a maximun, and to some nutritionists, a high dose of melantonin. for those of you mazing this up to 6 and 9 - how long term have you been employing this for. one concern in melantonin production in the body is its role in migrain headaches.

Will You Be Tired?
First, our dosage is 5mg not 6 mg. You will not be tired in any way the next day. The dosage is delivered over 6-hours and by the time you wake up you are good to go!

We must say that our 5mg transdermal dose is the optimal dose. First, unlike oral melatonin supplements, our delivery is via a 6-hour timed release. So you are not getting all of the dosage at once. Second, even though the patch dosage is 5mg, there is some "shrinkage" in the transdermal process. So the effective dose is between 3.5mg and 4.5mg.
The melatonin patch is fantastic! We hope you will trial it.

I think that over 3mg of melatonin isn't very good for our body. If melatonin is high, then it doesn't help you to fall asleep. The opposite happens! Also you get used to, so you must take it only when you really need to fall asleep fast.
There are some studies also, but i don't have a link!
