That's another thing as well. I often fall victim to sleep paralysis while on Melatonin. If I don't succumb to the sleepiness right away I get caught in this kind of in-between state of consciousness which usually ends with me being paralyzed. It's happened so often that I kind of got used to it but it's definitely not enjoyable. It usually starts with this loud humming noise that gets louder and louder until I can feel it vibrating through my entire body. When I was younger I used to have Out of Body Experiences on an almost nightly basis, and when I'm in sleep paralysis it feels like if I let myself I could get out of my body but I don't think I'm ready for that yet
But I think that's a whole other conversation


I also read about a study where people actually use it to enhance their dream states. Like I said I think it works differently for everyone and maybe others might get enjoyment out of it!

First off I understand your concern of the effects on
Children however growing up I had issues with sleeping
Now I'm 24 years old and sti cant sleep I wish
Someone would have given me a supplement.
I'm lucky if I can get 2 hrs of sleep doctors say
Its not unhealthy nor affecting my health to not sleep
But personally I would like to get sleep I haven't
In years I was also told that since my body is use
To not sleeping from a young age it would affect me
Now if I did take an aid and make me feel like I
Over slept and also that this was an issue that should
Have been solved with sleep aid when I was younger
So honestly I don't see a problem with giving a child this
Aid I would recommend always getting the advice
Of a doctor had my mother done that I wouldnt have
Sleep problems . Sometimes sending ur child to bed early
Or waking them early just isn't going to cut it . Look at me
I didn't drink soda nor did I have a lot of sugar as a kid
I had a bed time dark curtains a quiet environment, but
Obviously there are cases that just need help.

I once took 3 mg of Melatonin with vitamin B-complex. WOW is all I can say.

It was the first time I had a lucid flying dream, where it literally took conscious effort to fly. I remember being in some sort of a flying academy, there was some sort of "will" involved in jumping and flying.. but eventually I remember getting to the point of flying above mountain tops and over all sorts of landscapes, over the ocean, from America to Europe. It was amazing!!

I have since read from wikipedia about Vitamin B6 that:
"At least one preliminary study has found this vitamin may increase dream vividness or the ability to recall dreams.[26] This effect is possibly due to the role this vitamin plays in the conversion of tryptophan to serotonin.[26] Anecdotal evidence suggests supplemental vitamin B6 may be associated with lucid dreaming."

I think that that combined with melantonin created one hell of a trip in my sleep
