Melatonin can be bought over-the-counter, no prescription needed. It is not recommended for long duration usage, but I have no idea what science
backs up these claims, maybe it's just a CYA provision.
I have taken a form called "super sleep" which as I mentioned above is combined with 5-HTP and L-theanine for a couple years on and off, great
results with no noticeable side effects. The two tabs I take contain a total of 3mg Melatonin.
About a decade ago I tried it as well, though was taking 5mg and over sometimes without the 5-HTP and L-theanine added - and had a couple of issues,
like feeling really sluggish sometimes. Stopped completely taking it for a few years and restarted with this new type - and feel great.
