    It definately helps ease into sleep and quiet the wheels a bit. Take about 15-20 min before bedtime or so. I use it as needed. It is also very helpful for our Storm phobic dog and it was recommended to us for seizure prone dogs .Of course check with your health professional as well first. No side effects and definately helps to calm but not "drugged" feeling and no bad Hang over effects.

    I also have a storm phobic dog and the vet has him taking Xanax as needed. Wondering how Melatonin equates and dosing, as he weighs 25#. Thank you.

    It works, but I wake up in the middle of the night after about 4 hours of sleep. I then have a hard time getting back into deep sleep. This will probably work for 'normal' people, but why would a normal person take this unless they want to induce sleep. I would recommend this to 'normal people or the ones with mild sleeping problem.

    Comments about the Vitamin Shoppe Melatonin 3 MG - 120 Capsules:

    Use to help aid sleep. I've taken it twice thus far, one hour before bedtime and two hours before bedtime. I was able to fall asleep as usual but on both nights I woke three to four times never getting more than three hours of sleep. I was sleeping better prior to taking the melatonin. I'm disappointed with the results thus far. The worst part is I am exhausted the entire next day after taking the supplement. I'm not sure I would recommend this product.

              3mg per day was recommended to my wife for fertility by our doctor. i have tried it now several times now as directed 20min before sleep and i can honestly say that i will use this instead of 1 TyPM in the future for a sleep aid. It has really worked for me in hepling to get to sleep. The jury is still out on improved quality of sleep but it has not been worse.

              We Have used both tablet and capsule forms of this product from VS. Health issues cause severe chronic sleep issues and this helps. On recommendation of friend & Dr tried it. I take regularly but do take Breaks from it now and then. It is high quality and help calm ease deeper sleep. Its NOT lnock you out sleep aid nor a Cure or Instant. I would recommend trying lower dose and see how it helps and work up from there if needed. It helps our older dog as well. She can take 3 -6 mg for storm phobia/seizure prevention. It does ease her some IF taken before the threat soemwhat but it does not knock her out. She does sleep deeply once the "threat" is over/gone. She is a nearing 10 yr old, 33-35b Corg mix and has had no ill side effect issue with it. She has not had help from other other remdies,training Rx over the years. Hope it helps and worth a try for both human and furred. Restful healing sleep wishes for all.....

                  This isn't a get-to-sleep-aid, but rather a get to a deeper sleep helper. I try to take it 1-2 hours before bed. From time to time, my brain won't shut off from the daytime and I have a hard time getting to sleep. But when I finally do fall asleep (even if it's only for a short few hours), I still wake up fairly easily, like I'm mostly rested. I believe this helps me get to a deeper level of sleep, and I do have more vivid dreams, which help the body get some of the rest it needs. I never wake up feeling drugged and there's no requirement of minimum 8 hours sleep before getting to work. Vivid dreams scared me at first, but now I know they mean I'm sleeping better.

                      It works, but I wake up in the middle of the night after about 4 hours of sleep. I then have a hard time getting back into deep sleep. This will probably work for 'normal' people, but why would a normal person take this unless they want to induce sleep. I would recommend this to 'normal people or the ones with mild sleeping problem.

                                  Melatonin has long been known as a sleep aid. But in addition, it's worked for me to almost eliminate peptic ulcer pain. By taking 6 mg at bedtime, I've been able to stop taking acid blocker medication.

                                  I would like to know if this product is synthetic or of animal origin.I have heard that the animal sources can transmit viruses?!

                                  Best Answer: It's multiple vitamins and valerian as well as made up of other ingredients. I saw no animal sources on the label. I have been taking it for years. I am not prone to illness, so I can not attest to transmittal of viruses. I can tell you it promotes a nice, and peaceful sleep thusfar.
