Good to see you again Boo.

Haven’t read the links, but when I tried melatonin years ago, I had nightmares.

Thank you, Boo. Dr. Reiter’s Melatonin book is on my desk shelf even now. I’m glad now to have seen him speak.

Please tell us the conclusion.... I don’t have 3 hours... my experience- I love melatonin... 5 milligrams and I’m sleeping fine... if I use it too often I developed night sweats.

When I used melatonin before, I bought a milligram scale to dose it. Spoons are too hard to measure accurately, especially when dosing amount changes. They’re okay after an amount becomes what you use regularly.

Dr. Reiter said he’s currently taking 70mg nightly with sustained/quick acting.
But has taken as much as 300mg nightly in the past.

...5 mg every night works fine for me... Maybe I don’t need it, but why stop it?
