Yes, since melatonin is a hormone, I think, you don't need high doses. I only use 1mg at bedtime, but you could actually get by with half that if you use the other vitamins along with it. When they market melatonin, people think that the higher dosages should be better, but they aren't and you do develop tolerance to it over time. I think it's more than just taking melatonin for sleep. You need the other vitamins as well. I know you may think selenium a weird vitamin to take for sleep, but it does help in conjunction with the other supplements I mentioned, but dose is important. 50mcg selenium doesn't help much with sleep, but higher dosages do, at least 100mcg at bedtime and maybe more if you can tolerate it and it doesn't bother your stomach. As far as the B's, yes, you can take a B-complex during the day, but B1 and B2 have a calming effect at bedtime and can be taken separately before you sleep. Perhaps sufficient B6 and B12 should be taken during the day. That's what works for me.
