I started taking melatonin last night. I think it's working. About ten minutes after I took it, I started to become sort of drowsy, and it didn't seem to take as long to fall asleep as I'm used to. Then, at 7:00 this morning, I awoke of my own accord, well-rested. But, it was too early to get up, so I went back to sleep, and then I awoke a little later from the alarm, cranky.
I read that it takes a few days for it to come into full effect. So, we'll see if this helps to improve my sleep cycle a bit.
What time did you go to bed?
Maybe 12:30 or so.
My gut reaction is to say "placebo", but if it helps you get some much needed sleep - what does it matter.
Just out of curiousity, have you ever seen a doctor about your sleep issues?
Oh, I am very familiar with the word "placebo." :) At least it's a very cheap placebo; a couple cents a day.
No, I've never seen a doctor about my sleep problems. Someday I may. I was even a long-time friend with a doctor who worked at a sleep clinic back in Nebraska.
I wish Louise had a web presence linked to by a handy hyperlink.
