i was just wondering if anyone here has triedas a daily supplement, and if so, what are your oppions and comments about. please tell me how much of a dosage you took, and if your felt a positive change in your sleep pattern
I love it at 3 mg. daily. I use it about 3-4 times a week. Sleep is even better now that I'm on Powerfull.
I use it a lot, and I really like it. But in my opinion 3 mg is too much. I take 0.5 to 1 mg and it works perfectly. It really helps me falling asleep, since I normally have a lot of thouble with that. And also I wake up feeling really well.
Same here only take 0.5mg to 1 mg at 6'7" 260 lbs. and works great. sleep well and feel refreshed!
Less is more. In my experience less than 1 mg is ideal. Too much doesn't enhance sleep and just makes one groggy in the morning.
Most brands sell it in multiple mg formulations so look for tablets which you can manually split apart into smaller doses.
for some reason i tend to sleep less with melatonin. this says nothing of the sleep quality but the amount of time spent sleeping is less.
also, i have taken sonata (friends scrip) and i have similiar problems except on sonata the quality is diminished.
I take melatonin, works great. Just cant use it for extended periods of time, cause youl start needing more of it. I generally take 1-2g to help me relax. It works about 75% of the time IMO.
It gives you great sleep but at 3 mg, you're def groggy the next a.m. for a while. I usually just use it on weekends when I know I can sleep in. I took it this fri. and got a nice 10 hr. sleep. :-)
I used 3 mg. Not bad, but REM was better. I might try 1.5 mg. as it seems to provide better results..
i haved used Melatonin in several dosage the highest was 15 mg. i didnt noticed nothing more than back pumps from it. I had better luck with Usp Labs Powerfull
Back pumps from melatonin??? Never heard of that....but 15 mg. dosage is way, way too much by anyone's standards, I would say, so who knows what sides you'd get.
the back pumps i noticed at 15 mg at lower dosage i didnt noticed anythingOriginally Posted by nightfly71
Wow. 15 mg. that is a lot! 5 times the dose...
I'd be worried about the effects on brain chem. at that dose.
Didnt really work for me. I wake up more tired actually when I took it. I thought it was wierd since it works great for most people
That's common...try a lower dose or take it earlier. Maybe also only take it on nights where u can sleep in the next day.
Try a much smaller dose. I've found that .25 mg gives me benefit without side efects.Originally Posted by VtecTypeR
I absoultley love it. I take it at 3mg and dont feel groggy the next morning at all. The quality of sleep is very deep and usually acompained by vivid dreems. Im planning on taking it tonight
I face the same problem with melatonin, after using it for a while.Originally Posted by rkieltyk
I switch around using melatonin, magnesium, and sometimes chamomile tea, hehe.
