I think a number of us have discussed the melatonin thing. While taking Prozac I had to up the amount I took every night, but since quiting the Prozac I am back to Melatonin 1mg. sublingual. I still take Amitriptyline before bed, but that alone is not, usually, enough to get me to sleep. My problem is not staying asleep but falling asleep, so this may be why sublingual melatonin works so well for me.

I am still in a bit of a funk, it worries me, one of the biggest lows I have had since I was a teenager, [and the longest time I have gone without being pregnant since getting married at 19] anyway, after reading Dr. Bob's pharmo-tips and finding the depressive effects of melatonin, I tried to go without, challenging the depression so-to-speak. I found myself even worse in the morning, so I still don't know if the melatonin is adding to the low or what?

My advice is, try melatonin if you wish, but be aware that it may add to any depressive characteristics, or it may help, I don't know. And try to get by with the smallest dosage that helps, the sublingual enables me to take way less that the normal swallow kind.
