Oh goodness, I started with melatonin years ago at 1/4mg and slowly over years dosed up. Many do well on low dose therapy of melatonin.

Well we thought since he was a large guy that a low dose wasn't enough. We got them over the counter and they were 5 mg each. Doctor did not recommend it we just decided he should try it. he was only on it maybe 7 months. We stopped it. Got the Blood results in the mail but really don't understand the numbers. Appt had to be rescheduled for March 5th so we will talk to the doctor then.

It's good to start lower and dose up and I got my sleep combo together fashioned after a sleep remedy from a major supplement company. I add a couple other calming supps to my combo. I love to work on issues and find answers for myself. I just added tryptophan and B6 which gets me right back to sleep after my wake ups for bathroom. Got this advice from a friend who uses it.
