Melatonin!
    #2549716 - 04/12/04 02:31 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I am so happy I found this sleep aid. I like it a lot. Its good for people in general. So take this. I really like it. Start off on a high dose (15 mg). Find the dose from there.

Rejoice insomniacs.

I'm not talking from experience (melatonin is prescription only here) but isn't 15mg like 15 times the normal dose?

Its non-toxic up to 5 grams I think.

But the highest dose recommended is up to 20 mg.

Im pretty sure its safe. When you can not sleep. You do not really care.

You can buy it in the local drug market in most places.

It seems you are correct, 15mg isn't that much
I think it's cool how melatonin features in TiHKAL

Hey Mr Gubjet.  Thanks for recommending me this :S lol
If I'm correct, I heard it's not a good idea to take during the day, as alters your coordination of sleep?

Yes, it's not something you'd want to talk during the day (unless you work nights :smile:

Oh, and 15 mg is 5x the dose recommended on the label, but I've used melatonin since it was first on the market and have found I have to take more than recommended for it to do any good. 

I have regularly used melatonin in the 20mg range nightly (rarely, 40-50mg when insomnia is bad).  I wouldn't even have a problem with higher than that, but I'm concerned about possible down regulation of receptors and lower natural production; but that's just speculation.

The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat.

I agree that melatonin is a great sleep aid. But 15 mg is a pretty high dose to start with. The rule of thumb when experimenting is to start with a low dosage and work your way up. Sure you can take a lot and not die, but who wants to be groggy the next day when you didn't need that much?

Four mg's would be a good dosage to start with. If that doesn't work, increase in increments of 2-3 mgs. I have noticed there is a tolerance effect with melatonin- I would advise against using it every night. I used it four nights in a row and the fifth night off of it I got zero sleep.

I don't see melatonin on the shelves around here anymore. I wonder if it got banned. I hope not. I'm a natural insomniac and I love that stuff.
