Melatonin 10mg


The most common dosage of melatonin supplement that you can buy is 3mg. But there are instances where 3mg is just not enough. Our body responds differently to melatonin and we may need more or less depending on our genetic make up. The amount of melatonin we need also depends on the severity and the type of health condition that we want to treat. 10 mg of melatonin is ideal for those persons suffering from severe insomnia. Before taking high doses of melatonin, consider other factors that can make your sleep difficult. Spikes in blood sugar at night and caffeine are some factors that make sleeping at night difficult. Melatonin dosages in the range of 10-50mg are typically used in cancer treatment and in the treatment of other health conditions.

    I take 10 mg of Melatonin with 2 Benedryl tablets and I sleep pretty good. The Melatonin alone is not enough.

    I always had problem to have a good night sleep. I have tried several sleep herbal remedies, but none work for me until I started taking Melatonin at 10mg daily. Finally, I am having a good night sleep. I have no side effects so far! I started a month ago, and want to continue taking Melatonin.

      please keep us updated on your progress! I was taking 3 mg but its not working anymore so I just purchased 5 mg. I have never slept through the night, I wake up every 2 hours. I’m 5’1 and 190 lbs so sleeping 8 hours would give me the energy I need to exercise and go to work. I used to be 145! But with no sleep, after work I’m a zombie

    Cannot sleep!!!!
    Go to bed at 4-5 am and up all night~
    Tylenol PM doesn’t help-
    A muscle relaxer does help me-
    Just started 10 mg of Melatonin, and it’s NOT helping. I do take blood pressure medicine and antidepressant–
    Am I taking the right dosage, or should I be taking Melatonin?
    Thank you~

      i have found 10 mg is a very good dosage, if 10 mg is not helping, or you don’t feel it, maybe another drug would be better, just my opinion…

    I have been taking Advanced Melatonin Calm Sleep Fast Dissolve. It is 6 mg Melatonin and 25 mg L-Theanine. I take one tablet a night but it doesn’t seem to help me sleep all night. I have been taking these for about 20 days.Would it be safe to take two tablets at night or would the side effects (which I am not having) be worse?

      it depends on your body. generally, melatonin is safe even at 10 mg daily but it is recommended to take the lowest effective dose possible. the side effects at higher dosage would be more pronounced.
