:scared: Melatonin Guide
As we know, we need sleep at night at proper time to produce growth hormone is produced and protein synthesis as well as rejuvenate our energy. However, lately, i couldn't sleep at all and worse i kept eating around 2-3 AM. I bought 5mg melatonin and overdose it. It works so well but in the middle of the sleep I was hallucinating that my hearing was so vivid I could hear a rhythm whistle in my room and even complementing it, "Wow, that was a fine whistle" then realize I was wide awake and nobody is in the house but me, myself and no appliances turned on except for the refrigerator that noise couldn't possibly reach to third floor.
Just a warning. Ive also research melatonin and hallucination and does fact enhances noise. But the fact that I could hear a Rhythmic whistle is quite wicked.

why overdose it?
if it says in the directions the recommended dose, then the consumer has to accept responsibility for any consequences

Just because melatonin doesn't have an LD50 (That I'm aware off.) Doesn't mean overdosing isn't going to cause side effects.
Plus...melatonin inhibits testosterone secretion...at least from well crap i can't post links yet. Just google melatonin testosterone.

Unfortunately animals have to be overdosed to see how they react before substances are released for consumption by the general public

Well i found conflicting evidence, but suffice to say melatonin is an important hormone that one shouldn't mess around with, unless they need it ONCE IN AWHILE for insomnia or to regulate their sleep patterns.
Also, the effective dose in clinical tries I believe was .3mg, but since the FDA does not have oversight of melatonin, they can make it in whatever dose they want. 5-6mg is overkill and will make the sedative effect wear off within days. (I know cuz I took it for awhile.)
If you are planning on taking it long term, I'd start at the .3mg dose, which they have in stores.
And you shouldn't need to take it if you have good sleep patterns/hygiene. Go to the bed at the same time, no stimulants after 5pm, no bright lights, loud music, or tv/movies 2 hours before bed, etc.

I've had that issue of sensory impairment or hallucinations w/ sleep deprivation.
I had an issue w/ sleep a few yrs ago while going hyperthyroid. I barely slept for several days. Went to the doctor twice for different prescribed sleeping pills.
They would knock me out for a couple hours then I would wake an lie in bed the rest of the night. My mind would fixate on subtle noises such as fridge, sink.. things you don't usually notice. It was pure torture... very scary.
For the most part I think insomnia is caused by stresses in our life. You would do best to try and focus on techniques to reduce stress and sleeping aids.
Also, if you're going to use melatonin, find 1mg capsules and take the minimum needed to fall asleep...

it's not so much that.
i was born with it.
even when i was a baby (according to my 'rents) i never slept.

you should probably get blood-work done natty tex. Can they check for melatonin levels? If yours are out of whack, that could be part of it.
I know for 2-3 years i slept like absolute ****, and it's only gotten marginally better. Before that i can't remember if it was good or not, probably not though.
I invested in some ear plugs from walgreens, the highest db reducing ones. They are GREAT. Never sleep without them.
They kinda hurt your ears at first, just don't put them in to far, and eventually i think your ears get used to it.
I also use some white noise or calming music while I'm sleeping. It kinda distracts me from thinking so much, and it's also pleasant.
(Try ambient albums if you like that stuff.)
Get your room pitch black with thick curtains and keep your bed away from the door or windows.

other than that everything was normal. I get blood work every few months...
