I've tried many different brands of melatonin. This one is becoming a favorite. Some other brands take a while to kick in, and then you wake up at 4 am wide awake. This timed-release one works quickly and keeps you asleep the whole night. I do not feel groggy when waking.
All brands will give you more vivid dreams which can sometimes be unpleasant "alice in wonderland" experiences, but so far this brand seems to be less vivid and more pleasant overall...maybe due to the addition of vitamin B which the others lack.
One of these with a cup of sleepy time valerian tea, and I enjoy a good night's sleep without the groggy after-effects that I got from benadryl or "pm" medications.

For me, falling asleep is a 90-120 minute task every night, regardless of how tired I feel or what time I get into bed. I end up sleeping roughly 4-5 hours per night. Although I don't feel tired in the morning or throughout the day, it stresses me out to think about trying to get to sleep at night, especially since I do a lot of driving. I bought these hoping they'd help me fall asleep quicker and stay asleep until I was ready to wake up. I know that most people that take melatonin take a lower dose, but I went for these as they are supposed to be a time release formula. Unfortunately I did not find myself falling asleep any quicker than usual, and on top of that, I would consistently wake up after about 3 hours of sleep and then fall in and out of sleep for several brief periods (sleeping for 10-20 minutes at a time) until it was time to actually wake up. I probably ended up getting more cumulative sleep, but constant waking and nap-like sleeping made bedtime even more stressful. There were nights I was so frustrated I ended up taking 2 tablets but still had the same poor results. I gave these a decent shot -- I have about half the bottle left -- but I'm getting rid of the rest.

    Comments about Natrol Melatonin TR, Time Release, 5mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

    This is very great to have around the house for a few reasons! I used to take benedryl or tylenol PM as a sleep aid, but I kept working up tolerances plus it didn't feel right having to take medicine every single night like that. I wanted something more natural so I started looking at other sleep aids and trying them. This is by far the best I have tried! I don't feel as groggy as I do when waking up from benedryl-aided sleep, and it just feels very relaxing. I have also taken it when my anxiety spikes and I feel an attack coming on. It kept me from escalading and helped me calm down fairly quickly. Amazing stuff, I refuse to NOT have it handy. 5-HTP also helps me relax so I always keep it around as well.

          Comments about Natrol Melatonin TR, Time Release, 5mg, Tablets, 100 ea:

          I have a terrible time falling asleep and also going back to sleep if I awake. Melatonin TR helps me get to sleep smoothly and because it is time released, if I should wake, I simply go back to sleep because it is still working in my system.

                    I ordered this after reading all the great reviews. Took it on an empty stomach - did NOTHING! Going back to the GNC brand that was much more effective.

                      I've searched to find the combination of melatonin with B6, surprised to find the right dose here, recommended by professionals, the dosage of 5mg, with the B6.
                      I have taken this for years, the trick to it, take on an empty stomach, a few minutes before you plan for bed.
                      I have my fiance on this now, he's finally getting a full nights sleep in.
                      Melatonin is a natural hormone, we all start losing as we age. It has many uses, I found it very interesting looking it up and the many things it is used for, besides sleeping.
                      I highly recommend this, and hope this site never stops carrying it.
