    Melatonin hangover

    Been having some sleep issues the last few months and my doc recommended me some melatonin. Felt like shit after the first night i took it. Its dosed at 2 mg. Any way of avoiding it?

    Use less. There's a reason tabs generally come in 0.3 mg and 3 mg. I have 5mg tabs and just bite off a little piece.

    ^^^ this... It affects your natural melatonin levels in your brain... And w/the lowest dose possible is the best way(I've been doing the exact same thing as Bona stated) I have 5mg tabs and break em In hlf then again and I've been sleeping better than when I was prescribed Trazadone(which is also used as a food enhancement as well) in people w/eating disorders or just have trouble eating...

    Yes, yes - listen to Bonaparte and Nach3 - try a smaller dose.

    I rarely use it anymore following all my sleep hacking, but for awhile I was taking some every night since it's such a good brain antioxidant. But I had 500 MICROgram tabs, and I was taking an 1/4 to an 1/8, which worked wonderfully. So that's approximately 125-62.5 mcg!

    This is prob one of the most over dosed supplements out there. As has been said numerous times in the thread, lower your dose significantly.

    Did you get a solid 8 hours sleep ? Did a coffee bring you round ?
