    I'm taking 3 mg melatonin and 250 mg magnesium, as well as 50 mg zinc, an hour before bed time. I'm still testing the effects. I haven't noticed any side-effects.

    I like your posts. But I have to be careful about what I put in my body. I've had some BAD experiences this past year with meds, both over-the-counter and prescribed.

    There is nothing magical about alternative medicine.

    Yes, you wouldn't believe how crazy it was at first, when those little things like Benadryl that I used to take suddenly turned against me. And also caffeine of all things. It was literally destroying my family. Even when taking Melatonin, I'm very cautious about the possibility of hallucination and severe mood swings.

    Who is that in your avi anyways? Looks like Richard Kuklinski.

    Also, speaking of Benadryl, it's actually a pretty effective sleep aid in the 50 - 75 mg range. You can't take it every day though because tolerance builds quickly, and you will have to take more and more for it to work. It's also a deleriant if you take too much so.. you have to be careful.

    I would not recommend it as a long term solution for insomnia.

    I wasn't abusing Benadryl, I'm not a pill-popper; caffeine was my drug of choice, purely for the energy, to keep going on all the jobs, and because it makes soda really tasty.

    My older step-daughter was on Seroquel when she was in high school, and she couldn't stay awake in class.
    Reports are... for some people, even if they have had taken it for months, that somnolence will stick to you like glue. You will be sleeping for like half a day at minimum... no matter if you take it at night time. It is probably why it is used as anti-psychotics, it works as intended... as a tranquilizer, lol. Get your doctor/PA to switch away from it... sounds horrible. Besides the sleep issue, I don't know why your PA gave you the go ahead in using such a strong drug besides the fact that they could be paid by the company to hand them out. If you are serious about taking a sleep med, I think you should ask the doctor about Trazodone or Mirtazapine... for the least. I mean... dear god... people may have trouble sleeping, but I don't think people need to be tranquilized the whole day.

    Sounds a lot worse than Paxil (heard that it is one of the most addicting antidepressants/anti-anxiety drugs out there.)

    Street heroin seems to fuck you up less than what the doctors describe, also the addiction potential is about the same and it has less side effects. Not to mention that sleeping pills fuck up the rem stages of sleep, so you dont even get a good sleep if you sleep drugged up with them.

    You really should think twice before taking some drugs like that.

    Woke up to a melatonin "hangover" this morning. Bad headache and then nausea. The 3 mg dose was a bad idea. The mayoclinic site recommends .5 mg, and lists "headache" as one of the sides. The guy at GNC warned me that 3 mg may be too much.
