Hello I take 3mg of lunesta (eszopiclone) can I take 5mg of melatonin with it? I'm having trouble falling asleep tonight'
No reported risks. You should be okay. Did you eat too much or too late? That can delay sleep, but this time you can try a dose as directed safely. Good night! Speak w/ doctor about this when you can - there may be better treatment choices. Read about sleep hygiene too.
How long does it take for 2mg of melatonin to work this is the 2nd day I've been using, I'm having trouble Falling asleep and staying asleep.?
Melatonin. Hi. In my experience, melatonin helps some people fall asleep, and it works relatively quickly (for example, within 30 minutes). It's short-lived, however, and it tends not to keep people asleep. So it may benefit you in falling asleep but not do much for keeping you asleep. You can try more also (3, 4, or 5 mg, for example). Good luck and sweet dreams! Read more...
Is it okay to take melatonin every night to sleep? I have trouble falling asleep and I've been under alot of stress lately.
Yes. If it works for you, then you can take it every night to help you sleep. It is fairly safe and non-addicting. It may cause headache, dizziness and cramping. You should wait at least 4-5 hours before attempting to drive or operate machinery. You could also try learning deep breathing and muscle relaxation techniques from a therapist. There are apps that help you quiet your mind and meditate. Read more...
