> I usually took between 1-2mgs either regular or ER form. It would keep me AWAKE! Could not fall off at all into unconscious sleep! awful. I did not think of taking way less, nor did the Dr ever suspect that. she just said to drop it!
> I usually fall asleep by myself(no meds or supplements) with out a problem. however, I will awaken 4-5 hours later and have trouble going back to sleep. most things I take at bedtime(Rx, OTC, or vitamins)will still have me wakening after 5 hours with the best of them. so why bother taking them? I take part of a choline/inositol pill when I wake and then I usually get a bit more sleep in with vivid dreams, and no hangover for the day. its not the best, but I get a few more moments of REM sleep at least and the day is better than without that extra bit.

It's possible that you're not going to benefit from melatonin, if it's not part of your disordered sleep pattern. The neat thing is, if it works, it tends to keep working. I've used it for years, and restorative sleep is the central core of my sense of well-being.

> are you a researcher or MD?

I'm a scientist. I have a background in chemistry and biochemistry. In some limited fields, I probably know more than the typical doctor. I specialized in environmental toxicology. I read a lot of medical literature, which at least gives me familiarity with the arcane language of medicine, and the way the science is progressing.
