Does any take melatonin to help them sleep? When I take it I take 40mg and I’m still waking up during the night multiple times.

      Melatonin never worked for me lol. It always gave me weird dreams and I would wake uo throughout the night. I usef to take Benadryl and that would knock me out but I would feel groggy in the morning every time I took it. Hope you can find something that works for you!

      Sorry you’re not sleeping well! That’s a very high melatonin dose, you only need 1-5mg. Melatonin increases REM sleep (when you’re dreaming and can easily wake up), so that might be why you’re waking up a lot. Try decreasing the dose or using a different sleep aid, melatonin is marketed as “natural” but the companies don’t tell you it can actually mess up your sleep!

      I use melatonin and haven’t had a problem, but I agree it doesn’t necessarily keep me asleep, just helps me feel sleepy at night. But I agree with the above comment, that’s a very high dose unless that’s a typo! I typically take 3mg. CBD helps me stay asleep throughout the night, but it’s expensive. When I take CBD for bed I take 50mg
