Normally I do not have sleep problems, but I have experimented with KETO diet and it seriously affected my circadian rhythm - my nights were white. Since the diet deprived my brain with melatonin I compensated it with pills. At the beginning it took 60 minutes to feel the effect. Nowadays, I do not have sleep problems, yet I try to teach my body to enter sleep mode before 24:00 and pills are helpful in this experiment. Sleep is coming approximatively 30 minutes after intake. That is my first experience with melatonin, could not compare the brands but I choose Now Foods Melatonin mostly because the ratio price-quantity appears reasonable to me.

did not have any sleep inducing effect on me, nor on my daughter another brand with only 0.5 mg sublingual is more effective

The 3mg didn't really work for me. It made me "out of it" and lethargic the next day. After taking for a couple days, I realised it was affecting my mood - making me depressed. I stopped taking immediately. I rather lose my sleep than feel depressed and lose my zest for life.

The 3 mg dosage is too strong in that it can cause depression. It is about 5-10 times the amount needed.

i have tried 2 other brands of melatonin that worked really well. i bought this one because the price was good and NOW is a usually a good brand. however these did not work at all for me...dissapointing!

I've taken melatonin pills many times and have bought a variety of brands. For whatever reason, these have been completely useless to me. I haven't even felt the slightest bit tired. I've taken my normal dose and even more than that with no effect. Most Now Foods products I buy are great but this one is a dud.

I give this to my 5yo son who is on the autism spectrum. It has greatly helped him sleep through the night and have a more restful sleep. This in turn has helped him be more focussed during the day.

iherb service was excellent but the product itself isn't working for me - this was a trial, will not buy again.
