It's good to see someone aside from me using LEF as a resource.:)
I have used melatonin too. (I don't use it on a regular basis; only when
I'm having insomnia or need to be asleep at a certain time because of, say,
a business trip.) Comparing my experience with those of friends, I've found
that you have to experiment a bit with dosage. The variation can be high.
Some people (me) can squeeze a full night's sleep from 500mcg while others
3mg or more. I think it's best to start with a small dose -- 1mg -- and
moving up or down.
Also, friends and I have noticed that if you fight the melatonin -- i.e.,
try to stay awake when you start to get sleepy from it -- you wind up with
