CHERYL H: Florence, I do not believe this is "time released". 10 to 20 mg at bedtime seems to help me, but I also take other prescription medications at bedtime that cause drowziness. Webt thru years of Ambian and Lunesta, and had unwanted side failure to go to sleep and amnesia. That was frightening. Good luck with your journey toward a good night of sleep. Jun 2, 2013

caroline j: It doesn't say time released so I think not. The great thing about Life Extension is that you can call direct to get your questions about their supplements answered at 800-544-4440. You can also ask to speak to a complementary doctor and get info on any condition that you might want to ask about. Jun 6, 2013

Robert K: I honestly don't know, but it has been very effective for me in helping me fall and stay asleep--with much longer REM periods.

I am a 60 yr old male and have been using it for 10 years.

Dr. Richard S: In my experience, if a product is time-release, which is more expensive to manufacture, the label will say so. This does not. Jun 2, 2013

A Vitamin Shoppe customer asked: Hy, my father was diagnosed with glioblastoma brain tumor.They removed the whole tumor, and now he will start with chemotherapy. I would like to know what is the dose he should start with? May 25, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Leanne L: This question should be addressed to the doctors that are taking care of him. His oncologist needs to be aware of every medication, supplement, and vitamin he is taking.
Some supplements interfere with chemotherapy.
I am a physician myself and strongly recommend consulting with his doctors. Melatonin works on receptors in the brain and may have negative interaction with effects of chemotherapy.

Florence A: I think you should ask your doctor. I had problems sleeping and my Dr recommended 10mg, but I was not operated. Its a whole different situation. May 25, 2014

Gloria D: I woud start with 10mg. Increase with 5mg more for limit of 15mg which I do with my doctor's recommendation. I'm 84 years of age. May 25, 2014
Reply to Gloria Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
CHERYL H: Because of your father's diagnosis, I strongly recommend this should be discussed with his physician. May 27, 2014
Reply to CHERYL Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
