Contrary to popular belief, melatonin is no more natural than anything else you've been taking. It's a SYNTHETIC hormone, it is made in a lab just like all other meds. Also, if you take it every night, you run the risk of ruining your own brain's production of melatonin. Our brains makes melatonin when the sun goes down, it signals our brain to get ready for bed. You can give it a try, but as with any hormone replacement drug...you run the risk of screwing up your bodies ability to make that certain hormone on it's own. marijuana is probably safer in the long run for sleep, than melatonin.

I've had sleep issues all my life. What works best for me is avoiding caffeine after midday and taking a calcium supplement about an hour before bed. They make me so drowsy!
