      I feel it is best to limit bright lights 1-2 hrs before bed as this inhibits the release of Melatonin

          Comments about Natrol Melatonin, 5mg, Extra Strength, Tablets, 60 ea:

          I didn't pay close enough attention to the ingredients. There's a ton of Vitamin B-6 in this, which I am really sensitive to. It works great and I felt fine for the first few days and then I started to feel really weak and shaky and sick (my normal reaction to too many vitamins).

          I'd recommend getting something that's just straight Melatonin if you're going to be taking it for a long time, or at least checking with a Doctor if that amount of B-6 is good long-term.

            I used this when I am traveling overseas to beat the jet lag. It is very effective. It doesn't make you drowsy, but relax you and you can actually fall asleep if you work with the timing. I have tried other brand that didn't work as well. My 9 year-old son has had severe difficulty falling asleep. The doctor wanted me to take him to a child psychiatrist. One night the idea occurs to me to let him try this, and ever since he has been able to fall asleep and stay asleep. He woke up fine with no sign of any side effect. I cut the pill in half for him though. I am very happy that I find this at Drugstore.com. My local pharmacies don't carry this exact product.

              Comments about Natrol Melatonin, 5mg, Extra Strength, Tablets, 60 ea:

              Over the past two years I have used this product and have recommended its use for numerous friends and family members. It has never failed to help, although we have differing dosage requirements. I have the found 5 mg tabs to work for myself and my husband; others have used as low a dosage as 1 mg. We never wake up groggy; in fact, just the opposite. As others have noted, it does not knock you out; it just eases you into sleep. If awakened, you easily drift back off. How lovely to sleep again!

              Works better than time-release version

                  Comments about Natrol Melatonin, 5mg, Extra Strength, Tablets, 60 ea:

                  This is the highest-dose melatonin I have found; I spoke with someone at Natrol who said that 6mg is the most someone would want to take as a daily supplement. This differs from what some natural doctors say, who think you should increase the dosage until you find an amount that works for you, as the risks are minimal at best. For those who are afraid of the dosage, think about what you are putting in your body when you use prescription drugs, and don't worry about this, especially at only 1 tablet per night. I did a lot of research to try and find out if taking this long-term would mess up your sleep pattern, how much is too much, etc. There isn't a lot of long-term data, but what I did find out is that melatonin is a cancer protector. Older folks and people who are exposed to light at night (anything more than a dim nightlight) tend to have less melatonin, and thus, less protection. The one thing to note is that this is not going to "knock you out" like a prescription does. It does help, especially with consistent use, but don't expect it to make you sleep through any amount of noise, hunger, or other problems that may be keeping you up at night. Implement good sleep habits along with this product and you will probably see some results. At worst, you are getting some cancer prevention.

                  I have been an insomniac ...

                  I have been an insomniac for years. I have tried melatonin in the past, 1mg and 3mg tablets, but had no effect on my sleeplessness. After overcoming a near addiction to sleeping pills and Xanax, I decided to try the 5mg Natrol melatonin. Hooray! I am sleeping, and the only reason I give it 4 stars is that I still do occasionally wake up in the night, but can get back to sleep, and I do feel a bit groggy in the a.m. However, I'll take the sleep!
