I had bought Melatonin 5 mg supplement fast dissolve a couple months back and decided to use it because I am taking so much benzo with no outcome.
So it has been 5 days I am taking it before 5 minutes of sleep and I am falling asleep within 10 minutes.
I really hope this goes on like this, at least it a natural and I want to quit Ativan because it is not helping me a tiny bit.
I hope it works for you!
Back when my illness was not being treated I could barely sleep and melatonin did not help.
It only started working once I was properly medicated.
Now I sleep without it because Clozaril
I take 3 mg of melatonin it takes me awhile but I do fall asleep pretty good with it.
I had sleep problems all through growing up and since I’ve started using melatonin I’ve had practically zero problems. Been sleeping well for over a year!
Melatonin rocks! It works too well on me though and I have a hard time getting up if I take it late. And because it’s a hormone your body doesn’t get “used to it” in the same way it does with benadryl
Melatonin usually takes two to three hours to work. It is not fast acting. Take it two to three hours before you go to bed at night.
I have taken melatonine.
But i find breathing exercise very helpful…
I go to bed and instead on breathing slowly in and slowly out…i force myself to breathe slowly in and fast out.
I do it cause i think the reason i dont fall asleep is that i try to fall too fast. I shut my brain off so fast my breathing and heart dont underestand whats going on. Heart and breathing dont work as fast as the brain.
Anyway i think thats why I dont fall asleep.
