Hi. I do pop a 2.5 mg melatonin most nights (and take a break from it sometimes). When I first started I had very vivid dreams, but that subsides
(darn it, they're fun to coast through). No side effects that I can tell.
The brain makes melatonin naturally and the one thing that depletes it quickly is light. So having a light on at night, or getting up and moving
around in light may decrease its usefulness. As animals we are made to exist in a world without electric light, so the natural melatonin production
begins in the darkness of night.
There have to be ATS threads on melatonin. I'll take a look. EDIT: Here's one, and I'll read it later too:
I had to get off the search engine page (lots of ads rushing at me and popping out the side - I'm out of there), but there were more than one thread
listed, and one of the titles was about a scary experience. Others might want to look.
