I've been using it for almost a year and it's been working. In combination with Serenity Natural Sleep Aid my sleep has improved quite a bit. Melatonin alone gave me good improvement and then both together got my sleep patterns back in check. Falling asleep faster and staying asleep through the night!

This is pretty much your basic melatonin. Helps with sleep for sure, and its priced very well. Lateley Ive been looking for a pill that will do something a little “more” I see now that there are several options for diet pill that include melatonin and other sleep and relaxation aids. I started using one of them called Atrafen PM, Atrafen PM -PM Diet and Sleep Aid Suppresses Appetite. Helps Regulates Blood Sugar and Cortisol Levels, Stimulates Your Metabolism, and Provides Deep Sleep and it is absolutely amazing. It has melatonin in it, but it doesn’t just knock me out. It gradually helps me wind down, then puts me to sleep. I have also lost 7 pounds in my first month using it!! An extra seven pounds just by switching pills. Its more expensive, but losing that much weight is a HUGE bonus.

I got into a nasty routine of waking up in the middle of the night and not being able to go back to sleep for 1 or 2 hours. First night and every night since taking this before I go to bed I sleep like a rock! I almost went to my doctor before ordering this product but am happy I did not. I did not want the side effects from prescription drugs that I have read about.

I started to use Melatonin several years ago to get some help adjusting from jet-lag. During these years, I have tried different brands and dosage and I discovered that you can really tell the difference.

This Melatonin is by far the best I have ever tried. It really makes me sleepy and give me a solid night of sleep.

I was extremely skeptical about this product when I first ordered it. I was one of those people who thought that the only effective medicines came from behind the prescription counter and with a doctor's orders. And that's how I ended up with a quasi-addiction to Ambien.

When I realized that taking Ambien every night was eroding my daytime memory and having other adverse effects, I realized that I needed to quit taking it. I tried going cold turkey but couldn't sleep at all and was miserable for a week. I ordered this product in desperation, sure that it wouldn't do anything for me. But to my amazement, it helped fill the void left by Ambien without any of the nasty side effects.

Of course this isn't as effective as a prescription drug like Ambien or Lunesta, but it actually does help you fall asleep in a noticeable way. And best of all, it doesn't have any of the horrible side effects of prescription sleep aids. I highly recommend this product to anybody who is looking for an alternative to RX sleeping pills or who needs help tapering off their prescription.

Wow, oh, wow. Really? This stuff really works well for me. I have odd shifts in my work that have my sleep habits constantly out of touch. As such my body thinks it can stay up late because It did the night before. I was desperate because micro sleeps to and from work in a car were really dangerous.

But now this stuff starts working on me in 1 hour and I'm ready to go to sleep. I even experimented with forcing myself to stay up longer and 3 hours was the maximum before I was flopping around the room trying to get to bed in a hurry before I feel right to sleep.

I hope this works as well for you as it did me. :)

Melatonin is derived either chemically/synthetically, extracted from a plant, or extracted from the brain of an animal. Most melatonin you find in walmart etc, is a synthetic melatonin. Synthetic melatonin is not identical in molecular structure to natural melatonin. Some chemicals like this, can do more harm than good in the long term.

Just because this product is natural does not mean it should be used indiscriminately. In parts of Europe melatonin is a controlled substance that cannot be obtained without a prescription. It does work, it is a hormonal drug, and it is powerful. Your body can become less sensitive to melatonin and it's own melatonin production can decline with long term use over 2 months. Therefore it should be used with some discretion. Your body can also increase its sensitivity over time to melatonin and regain it's own production if supplementation is paused. How long that takes will depend on the person.

Melatonin is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in mammals, which chemically interacts with your brain to help induce sleep. Melatonin levels with most people elevate when their eyes are exposed to darkness, increasing as their length of time in darkness increases.

Some people, such as those diagnosed with ADD, or depression, or a SSRI (selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor) , may have impaired uptake of melatonin, or their brains are not as efficient at using it, so a boost can be useful, especially in today's world where people keep lights on until 11pm.

I have taken Dramamine, and Tylenol PM, and generic sleep pills in the past to go to sleep while people upstairs were being noisy even with my ear plugs in. The problem with those is they loose effectiveness overtime, and you can form a dependance on them.
