Okay, the timing for this thread was interesting for me because in France, I have not found melatonin available before, at least not in my area.
Yesterday I saw for the first time some being sold at the grocery store, and as my american family members have mentioned it before, I grabbed it.
Then I saw this thread, and decided to take it before going to sleep. But I don't really have problems sleeping, and have periods of very active
lucid dreaming already- I just thought, what the heck? It is 1.5 mg.
I did get drowsy early and went to bed around 9:30, but woke up at 2:00 completely awake and unable to get back to sleep! I ended up coming down here
and posting on ATS for hours waiting to get sleepy again.
Finally I was able to start falling asleep around 6:00, and slept until 9:00, when I woke up with a splitting headache and nausea. The nausea
continues, many hours later.....
So I am thinking, this hasn't been such a successful experiment so far! Is there cases of people have an adverse opposing effect like insomnia? Or
headaches and nausea?
I felt like like I do during a fullmoon, except it wasn't!
