I used to have trouble staying asleep once I fell asleep, so I started taking melatonin. I was taking two three milligram tablets but that wasn't doing it. I decided to try the five milligram tablets, and that did the trick. An hour before bedtime, I take two tablets with water, and once I fall asleep, I stay asleep for eight hours straight. I don't wake up until it is time to wake up, and that has been a delight for me. It is wonderful to wake up feeling refreshed and wide awake. Melatonin has a reputation for causing odd dreams, and I have experienced that with other brands, but this brand makes me sleep so well that I don't generally recall my dreams, let alone if they were odd. The only thing that would make these better, would be if I slept for nine or ten hours! That is only because I spent years and years with insomnia to varying degrees. Eight hours does it for me, and I don't really need more than that. I wish I could sleep well, but without this I can't. I will buy this for the rest of my life. It really does help me sleep, and I stay sleeping. My daughter was in the military and frequently deployed overseas. She told me that the military told them to take ten milligrams of melatonin if they had trouble sleeping until they acclimated to the time changes. It worked well for her on the occasions she needed it, and it works for me all the time.
