    Try breaking the pill into 4, that's what I do. Also, did you get the time release version, or the regular version (time released is supposedly better, as it holds you throughout the night)? Did it help you sleep through the night, or did it just help you get to sleep?

    Actually, I can trade these in for 1 mg and then cut those in half. I'll ask about time release when I'm at gnc. At least I wasn't waking up all night, just twice, and then it was easy to fall back to sleep.

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.)
    My step-daughter took seroquel a few years ago. I took trazadone and had tragic results with it.

    So now I'm drug tripping on Melatonin, only .5 mg, but that's all it takes. The result of taking Melatonin has mostly been better sleep, but more nightmares. Sometimes I wake up from the nightmares, so it kind of defeats the purpose.

    Last night was a night of one bad dream after another. But the weirdest one - I was walking past one of those big old-fashioned console TVs, the TV was turned on and I could see pictures moving on the screen. As I walked past it, I felt something cold grab my arm and stop me. When I looked down, there was a white arm coming from the TV screen grabbing onto my arm. And it was cold like a dead hand. The arm was attached to someone on the TV screen, kind of like in the movie The Ring. The arm started pulling me toward the TV screen, and I woke up.

    This happened the exact same way twice last night.

    I've been taking 50 mg melatonin every night. My dreams are normally extremely vivid but they've been crazy. Most are nightmarish too but I love the experience.

    I keep reading the words "50 mg" with a feeling of disbelief. Did you typo something there?

    Here is the dosing page on Melatonin:

    Nothing there about taking 50 mg unless you have cancer.

    I'm surprised 50mg puts you to sleep. I thought such high dosages (no need to go that high) caused a paradoxical reaction that resulted in more energy rather than better sleep. As for the nightmares, there's something that can be done about that, but I can't remember for the life of me. It think it involves vitamin (B-vitamin?) or mineral (magnesium?) supplementation. Something may be deficient.
