I have taken Melatonin for years and years now. As a life long insomniac, my pharmacist recommended this to me. He said, "The secret is to take it every single night. You have to get the level elevated in your blood, and then KEEP it there, Don't skip nights even if you already feel sleepy." And, from my experience, he is absolutely correct. I used to go days without sleep, nothing helped, not even Rx sleep meds. Melotonin taken 20 30 minutes before I close my eyes makes a world of difference. I wake to use the bathroom, but I can fall right back asleep., no problem. It isn't habit forming, no big morning hangover, it's inexpensive, and it occurs naturally in your body anyway. The level decreases with age, easy enough to get it back up there so we too can sleep like a baby. Highy recommended.

I workout at night instead of during the day, these don't have the medicine-y effects of a nyquil or somanex, but if you lay in bed about 20-30 minutes after taking these they will help you sleep and stay asleep, but they wont MAKE you sleep.I took ZMA before this and it had way to much of a aftereffect in the morning, which was also my problem with somanex, this helped even out my sleep cycle and I awoke a little groggy but not as bad as if I had taken something else, but not as little if I had fallen asleep on my own.Good product overall. Just don't think it will replace a heavy or Rx sleep-aid.
It did not work for me no matter how much I took. I took up to 15 mg. of it a day. I have found that over the years that what works for me is some kbind of inversion sleeping combined with common sense procedures like not eating or drinking too much.
