The Lounge>Does anyone take Melatonin?
Titty Meat 02:05 AM 02-26-2020
I'm starting a new shift next monday starting at 630 am. usually go to bed at 3am and even they it's hard. Was reading about melatonin supposedly it works. I used Benadryl on days I had to be up super early but half the time it didn't work or i'd be groggy.

It is supposed to help you fall asleep but doesn't help you from waking up during the night which seems to be my problem lately, there are some non addictive options, Silenor or Lyrica, feel a bit groggy with the Silenor sometimes.

Used to take it quite often. The best way you can take it and pretty much the only way it worked for me is to take it and after you take it make sure you are ready to go to bed and don't do anything that can be distracting such as, looking at your phone, watching tv, rubbing one out, giving Clay a handy, or anything else thatll keep you up. I found that after I took it, if all I did was lay down and try to fall asleep, that I would usually fall asleep in about 15-20 min.

Another thing about Melatonin is that more doesnt equal better sleep. The max you should take is 5 mg, but you should start out by taking .5 mg - 1 mg. Anymore than 5 mg can disrupt your sleep cycle.

I've used it on and off for years. It usually makes me a little groggy in the morning. Never had the bad dream effect, but it usually takes and extra cup of coffee in the AM to clear the cobwebs. I can't do Benadryl, it's like speed on me.

5HTP for the win.

I need about 30 or 40mg for it to work on me.

Taking 10x dosage isn't ever really recommended on anything.

I already take the melatonin. Hell, it's worth a try even if it helps a little. I'm sick of these fucking crickets.

If you are starting a new job, and itís consistently going to be 6:30am shifts, and you havenít already gotten your body in the habit of waking up early and going to bed early, the first few days will suck, but after a few days your body will get used to the change.

Itís just like how if you are a person who wakes up at 5am for work, these people usually wake up around 6-7am on the weekends regardless if they went to bed a little later because their body is in a repetition of being up early...

Your first day may suck, but if itís your first day, your day will probably go back quickly and seeing as you will be running on low sleep, be sure to go to bed early, and you can start getting into that habit

That is true to a degree. But in my life I have had a job where I had to be there at 6 a.m. and I never got used to that during the 8 or so months I worked there. And I also had a job where I got switched to 2nd shift for a while and didn't need to show up until 2 p.m.. I never felt so rested in my life, but it sucked ass for having a social life.

I've used em. They helped, but they're no substitute for training your body to sleep at a certain time.

I've experienced the groggy feeling from Benadryl and NyQuil. They're not designed to help you sleep, they're designed to knock you the fuck out. I wouldn't rely on them unless I was sick and really needed help getting some rest.

I usually do 1mg to kind ease the mind but, end up waking up from a deep sleep 2 hours in. I stopped taking it recently because it made me extremely dizzy for more than 4 hours and couldnít go back to sleep because of it.
