Yes, no big difference. It's not like taking two sleeping pills, it's super mild.

Directions say not to exceed 3mg per 24 hrs


I'm guessing it won't effect dreams if I take more than suggested dose

I have the dreams on 3mg

That is still a low dosage

Wake up, oh sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you

Dont do it.

3mg is the HIGEST dose you should take.

I was taking alteril which has 4mg per tab, everything was fine for 2 weeks, then i began to have THE WORST NIGHTMARES I HAVE EVER HAD. I WOULD WAKE UP WITH MIND RACING AND ANXIETY OVERLOAD.

I quit taking alteril and 2 days later I was fine.

DONT TAKE MORE.

GOOGLE MELATONIN NIGHTMARES.

I usually take 9 mg if I have to go to sleep early. The only problem I have ever had is a random slight headache the next morning. I only take it about once a week, though.

Yes, you'll b fine. Might get some better sleep out of it. Plus it's actually healthy for you. Strengthens the immune system and is anti cancerous.

i took 12 mg one time and it did jack for me.. it was hard to wake up and it didn't put me to sleep faster.... if your body runs real good the 6 will just put you down a little faster and may give you a better sleep
God will sort it all out in the end.

Re: Melatonin suggested dose 3mg. What if I take 6mg?
shouldn't take too much of anything,good rule is to take the lowest possible to achieve the desired results if 3 works 6 won't work better,melatonin does work though to help you get drowsy and fall asleep,personally .75(quarter of 3mg)works if I need it,sleep problems can be caused by metbolic syndrome amongst other thing(endocrine)your body has to metabolise alot of different proteins to support body functions including brain functions can cause alot of problems if you are not,diet is important.

taking more than 5mg, in my experience, causes restless sleep. it makes you feel like you are awake the entire night. melatonin has a very low toxicity, taking 100mg wouldn't do anything to you.

It's not dangerous. Insomnia sufferers are given 9 mil a night. I've tried 6 and 9 mils and it wasn't much different than 3 mils. It does leave me a little tired the next day, so I don't take it on the night before I have to do a lot.

Here's what wikipedia says:

Some unwanted effects in some people, especially at high doses (~3 mg/day or more) may include: headaches, nausea, next-day grogginess or irritability, hormone fluctuations, vivid dreams or nightmares,[103] reduced blood flow, and hypothermia

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

And WebMD says:

In adults, melatonin is taken in doses from 0.2 to 20.0 mg, based on the reason for its use. The right dose varies widely from one person to another. Talk to your doctor to learn the right dosage and to find out if melatonin is right for you.

[link to www.webmd.com]

And there's more....just go read the links.

Just like with ALL medications effects vary with the individual. Try it and see. If it fucks you up you know not to do it again.

I use to give my mom (alzheimer's) 18 mg in order for her to sleep through the night but be able to get up to go to the bathroom if she needed to and not be groggy the next day. Any less than that, or if I gave her the pills (crushed) instead of capsules and she'd be up half the night.

That's what it took for her. I think everyone is different.

Just putting that out there...

Melantonin is sometimes needed yes but will cause daytime droziness as well as depression in some people.

A friend used to take close to 100 mg a day, diurnally, with other related tryptamines...and very little behavioral effect was noticed.

Take as much as you like, just don't expect much more than a slight propensity for sleepiness.

I've taken 3x the recommended dose, it did nothing. In fact, it made it had the opposite effect and made me kind of restless. You know when you're tired, but can't help but just toss and turn. That's what it does for me if I take too much. Definitely not dangerous though, so don't worry about it.
