      @LivisNana sometimes I’ll try to take my second dose later in the evening to try to stretch out the amount of time I can actually get some work done and i end up just taking a nap 😂

      yep! the only thing that actually helps me sleep is cbd and/or thc.

        @spoonkingg Omg for real. The only things I've found that actually help are edibles and clonidine 🫠

      It's hit or miss for me, but when it does work it's really hard to wake up in the morning, so that kind of backfires.

      Melatonin has never helped me fall asleep. Honestly adhd meds help me sleep better than anything 😅

        @aries02 yes!! The meds I just started have turned the volume down on my dreams and I'm sleeping better than I can ever remember in my life!

      I can't take melatonin; it just gave me weirder nightmares than I was already having.

        @minime273 Same.

        @minime273 When someone says "this feels like a melatonin dream" I know EXACTLY what they talking about

        @minime273 SAME it put me to sleep but I never stayed asleep and it gave me such weird dreams 😭😭😭

      Melatonin wired me like a MOFO the one time I tried it.😭 Never again.

      Fasty brain gogos doesn't totally block out melatonin for me but I do find it much less effective than a lot of other options. I was previously prescribed gabapentin and I found it worked really well for me and helped me get a sleep schedule going

    • lolopie3333

      it worked the first time and then never again, I take vistiril now for the nights I need sleep

      It doesn't touch me, never has. I am currently on trazodone to help me sleep

        @Emo_Enby_99 I tried that for a bit and it worked but it made me groggy 😭

    • MixedBag0fMess

      My doctor recommended Benadryl for me for that reason, that usually works for me

      • royalty

        507d

        @MixedBag0fMess I tried Benadryl for a while and it put me to sleep but I always felt so groggy in the mornings and it was super hard to get out of bed.

      Melatonin gave me such severe nightmares that I was too afraid to go back to sleep. I had a friend tell me it had the same effect on him.

    • Firey.pisces

      507d

      High doses I found out can cause the opposite effect! I started splitting my 10mgs in half and i’m gonna go that until the bottle runs out and switch to 3mgs. Ngl melatonin is not the safest thing on the market cause it is often under regulated and is a psychoactive hormone being sold as a “supplement” my real benefits tend to come from CBD oil

    • Eren2273

      Melatonin worked on me when I was younger but eventually it didn't have any effect at all. No sleeping medications have ever worked on me, until I was prescribed Clonidine for sleep

      The amount of melatonin you need to feel sleepy is way less than they pills give you, it’s like half a gram max or something and having too much melatonin can cause the opposite of the desired effect and keep you up. If you can’t find very small melatonin pills I suggest taking tryptophan at night instead, it is a building block for melatonin and serotonin and your body can make what you need out of it

      • lolopie3333

        507d

        @VixenBelladonna yes my doctor said I could take 3 of my regular melatonin pills to equate to the normal amt

      • royalty

        507d

        @VixenBelladonna I never took pills it was always the gummies

    • 100Percent_K

      Melatonin doesn’t work very well for me and now I’m starting to wake up a lot on my gabapentin too 🫠

    • strugglebus

      For me, I feel like melatonin works sometimes. So I wonder if it only "works" on the nights I'm actually tired lol. Idk I don't take it consistently either, just when I feel like I CAN'T sleep
