  • 1Melatonin doseage and Usage?

    I have been taking prescription sleeping pills on and off for years for chronic insomnia . I have tried melatonin in the past, but I can not remember what dose I was taking. I know that the few times that I took and the dosage , which made me feel awful ! I have a bottle of tabs 3MG .. What is a good dose to start . I do not use the whole of Lunesta due to concerns of dependency ... If I can get a good dose of melatonin work think it would be much better as it is a normal occurring substance in the body ...

  • 3Marijuana usage causes: insomnia, depression, depersonalization and derealization how to deal?

    I've been smoking kush 2g myself every 3-4 days ( make cubes and lungs ) . Insomnia : Since I left (4 days ago) I slept three hours the first night , the second 6 hours and hours to zero over the next two days . I slept nine hours over 4 nights ! And yesterday night I was writhing on the bed , which is the reaction of my body to the THC in my system yet . Depression : My best friend always tells me to be its high or low her lol . Trust me , the depression becomes pretty bad especially when I can not sleep , I felt like a knife in the stomach with a knife . Depersonalization / derealization : Basically nothing seems real, and you feel as if you're dead or an outside observer . It's pretty scary . ( Look up for more information ) . It also causes loss of appetite , anxiety and nightmares ( dream once again) . Conclusion : Do not start , and if you have good to be prepared for this when you quit. Tho I think that will only experience these symptoms if you smoke a lot and if you have smoked for a while . Never had this until four days ago , and I have quit smoking within 6 months before and never experienced this. So it's something we can expect in the long run , I guess. I just want to inform you guys , and tips on how to deal would be greeat .

  • 12Feeling extremely depressed; wondering if it has to do with melatonin?

    So, during this past week, I have been feeling unbearably depressed, and it's only getting worse. I also began taking melatonin each night for the past two weeks. I googled the side-effects of melatonin; according to one source, it can worsen depression. I have never been to a therapist, and so I'm not diagnosed with clinical depression,so I don't know; does this mean I DO have depression? Or does it mean that there is another cause for my horrible, horrible mood? I mean, I've always felt depressed 3 days out of the week at least, but it's never been so bad. I am just wondering what I should do. I feel horrible. I can't sleep at all without the melatonin.
