Hi Scott -

My pdoc had me try melatonin. She suggested I started out at .5 mg and then build up. You can go up to quite large doses, although she didn't mention a maximum to me.

You do know about the problems with melatonin and depression, don't you?


> I have been having a lot of trouble sleeping since last Spring. It has gotten worse recently. I am able to fall asleep right away, but my sleep is very choppy, and I get very little sleep after 4:00am. I am trying to avoid taking any hypnotic medication so as not to complicate my treatment for bipolar depression.
> I bought some melatonin tonight, but I'm not sure how much to take and when to take it. Is there any advantage to sublingual administration?
> Thanks for any input.
