Sunshine Melatonin does work, but it is for short term use. It looses its effectiveness very quickly. At first it was great, thought I'd found a replacement for my rx meds that really were not working and giving me horrible restless legs. But it began to weaken, I increased the dose, and after a few days just wasn't working at all. Give it a try may work better for you. Hope this helps. Karen

Just wanted to add that one way to increase your body's own natural melatonin production at bedtime is make sure you sleep in complete darkness. Apparently even the smallest sources of light can inhibit this natural response from taking place. There are also quite a few studies about this online, but I thought the following article would serve as a good example for all things regarding melatonin:

On another note, I have taken melatonin supplements in the past and do feel that it worked well when I needed it to. However I never used it for more than a few weeks at a time, as I didn't want to throw off my body's natural production of it for too long.

Hope this helps!
