  1. Very insightful Andrew I have been using melatonin for a couple of months now and it has kept me sleeping like a baby sometimes maybe even longer than I should hahaha. I always find the better ‘rem’ sleep I get, the easier everything in life seems!
    Great user friendly site by the way, keep up the good work champ.


  2. Hi Andrew,

    Great content and nicely written. I just have one problem with what’s written and that’s that it’s another “drug / supplement” which costs money. Who makes these supplements? Are they made by big Pharmaceutical companies? Who gave them the right, support, legal backing to produce them? Was it another “scam” by the government? Now, I’m not knocking you for writing about the product and what it can do. If it helps people in the short term good! BUT, why not try another remedy that doesn’t cost anything? I would suggest using another method before resorting to a quick fix drug. Sorry if it sounds like a “dig”, but I don’t believe in drug taking unless it really really necessary.

    1. Hi Trevor,

      Drugs and supplements do cost money and yes they are made by big pharmaceutical companies. I have a feeling that you’re really against drugs and you are entitled to your own opinion, but without drugs a lot of us wouldn’t be here alive today. Sometimes people have tried a lot of different remedies already, but maybe none of them have worked and they have lost willpower so it would benefit them much more to just take the drug to relieve the pain.

  3. I tried taking melatonin for a week. While I do agree that it helped me get to bed, it gave me uncomfortably intense dreams and also left me with grogginess for the following day.

    I’d be interested to hear if you had any expereince like that in your first week of taking the supplement. The dreams were just so intense.

    Good Article!

    1. Nope on the first week I took the supplement I never had any negative side effects, but I only take melatonin if I need to be up early the next day as it takes me a while to fall asleep.

  4. Judging by the number of responses, this is undeniably a very involved subject. Whenever I return to this post there’s an interesting guest post better than some of the earlier ones.
