I'm the same mate. I prefer it at 9mg as opposed to a lower dosage. I stack with 50mg of diphenhydramine and it's great. There are numerous threads already covering this melatonin if you just do a little searching

Wow 10 mgs. I have never gone over 4mgs a night. I'm afraid of feeling too groggy in the morn. I like 3 mg with a little theanine and b6. I always feel great in the morning. Throw in a little phenibut and dreamland awaits.

Yeah, I never knew anyone breached the 6mg mark. 3-6 wasn't doing anything for me, so I just stopped taking it altogether. Maybe I'll rekindle the Melatonin flame.

i always add the melatonin with other things...by itself it doesnt do much for me...so i usuallly end up taking 25mgs of diphenhydramine or 10mgs of ambien...along with valerian root, gaba, and a few other goodies...

Dam y'all are some ballers...I only take 3mg, any more and I cant wake up.

3mg melo and 900 mg of valarian is my sweet spot. valarian takes a couple weeks to get into the sleep system.

i actaully read a study that 2mgs was effective at increasing GH...probably a dose dependent reactive supplement...melatonin, l-dopa, arginine, glutamine, gaba, and u got some wicked GH boosting...

Do you guys ever get scary nightmares from melatonin? I've had some of the worst nightmares waking up sweating ever in my life when taking melatonin... it was a 3mg dosage too.

I remember 3 mg used to hit me like a hammer, then I think I got used to it. Haven't used it in a few months though, trying to keep it natural

3 mg always works fine for me, sometimes i take 6mg if i am having trouble getting to sleep - but any more i would feel like a ****head the next day.

Man ive used 10mgs of melatonin with 1g+ of gaba and zma with no avail. Granted i usually never have any problems going to sleep on my own but i often find my self waking up several times through out the night. I didnt feel comfortable going over 10mgs of melatonin so i only ramped up the gaba but it only made it harder for me to sleep. I might try throwing in some benadryl and see what happens

Combine 3mg of Melatonin and 4 Abyss and ill see you at 2pm tomorrow.
I love melatonin, it works great for me at low doses. I abused it last semester and it seems to have caused me to lose that "ahhhh darkness, im sleepy" feeling. Although "they" say that melatonin does not induce dependency, i feel that it has for me.
I will take 2 Abyss about 2 hours before bed, usually immediately after my post workout shower. Then i will take another 2 an hour before bed on a semi-empty stomach.
I have messed with Benadryl but i am pretty hangover prone. IT works but i also feel like a "****head."
Good luck sleeping buddies

Jesus, am I the only one that takes 1 mg?
Well I do, about 4 nights a week with my nightly dose of ZMA.
ZMA has been a glorious thing for my sleep. Since I started taking it, I've had the deepest and best sleeps I can remember.
Paired with a little Zeus test booster and I just sleep my way through gains :P
