doesn't matter, any melatonin you get is in homeopathic doses anyhow.

melatonin is so potent in the body as a neurotransmitter, that you're only going to find it in reasonable 'pharmeceutical' doses if you purchase raw grams from a chemical company, no pharmacists will stock it.


hm.. I found it at a pharmacy!


ahhh well. you're probably lucky/in a lucky country where it's not regulated.

I think my dad had some raw grams he got from south africa somewhere.

I've had 10-20 MG of melatonin before and whenever I did i coulden't remember any dreams and I would be sleepy for about 2 hours after i wake up.

I take one full tablet (about 3mg). Always. I take it almost every day that I have sleep problems.

srs2388: Melatonin cannot hurt you; worst that happens is you get up a day late (happened to me.)

Melatonin dose

3 mg. should do it. Any more than that and you will sleep too deeply once you fall asleep. Also, I have found taking the valerian root along with the melatonin AND the B6 is no good. Again, it makes me sleep too hard once I fall asleep. Hope this helps.

Melatonin is the least toxic substance.. or at least that's what /they/ say. Since supposedly higher doses give you higher probability of lucidity, I will try it.

How much would I sleep if I did such thing? >_>

It is sayed that 6 mg are more than sufficiant if you don't want to treat insomnia

here it is a pharmacy-only substance , meaning you can't buy it at the supermarket .... :D
I used melatonin some years ago , it gives long dreams , and obviously helps if you are insomniac , but the best thing is : you can do awesome WBTB with it ,
