Hi, I'm another newbie to this forum. I'd love to chat to some new people. I'm autistic so not very good at conversation, but I do try hard to be friendly. Just tell me if I'm getting something wrong. Don't know what else to say, but happy to answer any questions, if people want to talk to me. Also I am starting Melatonin tonight as the docs etc. think I need to start sleeping better, so I will document how that goes. Anyone else take it, is it any good?

Welcome to the forum Hocotatian.

Found Melatonin helped on a few occasions. I think it works if that is what your system needs and responds to at the time. It can help with getting to sleep. Did not help me stay asleep - but that is not what it is prescribed for or designed to do.

Hope it works for you!!

ok I'm not really sure why I'm taking it. I have no problem going to sleep, if I'm tired. But if I'm not tired I don't sleep. I'm fine with this, its everyone else that thinks its a problem. I'm just about to take it now (10.10pm) dont know how long its meant to take to work as I have no info, just the single tablet. I do not currently feel tired.

Thanks, I just read it. Sounds like I won't know if it will work for an hour or two. I've not been sleeping properly since around the beginning of August, getting anything between 2-4 hours mainly only with the aid of sleeping tablets that eventually dont work anymore. Regularly go a couple of nights with no sleep too.(I didn't sleep last night, had 3 hours the night before)

So I think I fell asleep just before midnight, which would fit with when the melatonin should kick in. Woke up again at 1.15am. Feel fine, not tired.

Ok so update on the second night of melatonin. I took it slightly earlier last night and was asleep aroun 11pm. Woke up at just after 2am, full of energy for a new day.

Looking forward to a good, alcohol induced sleep tonight. I won't take the melatonin, but I'll put it in the emergency stash box.
