Melatonin and L-theanine: Anyone take these?

I have heard lots of good things about L-theanine. It's supposed to calm you down after a long day-and the melatonin helps you sleep.


does anyone take any of these or have advice for me about this stuff?

I've taken melatonin.

It works. A little too well for me.

What I bought was 3mg.

0.3-5 mg is the suggested dose. Start low and figure out what's best. Most people don't need 3mg+.

I take melatonin. I can't sleep because of my various illnesses. I was on Ambien, but wanted to break away from that, so I started on melatonin. It works for me. The Ambien gave me short-term memory loss. I'd do stuff at night and couldn't remember doing it the next day. Melatonin doesn't do that to me.

I don't but I know people who do and they say it works great. With my sleeping issues I probably should though.

I work nights and my mind's racing would always keep me awake and melatonin helps me to sleep.

i have never heard of L-theanine but RELORA helos to block cortisol, the stress hormone and also helps to relax you.
