Correct melatonin dosage?


#1

Hi, so I’ve started taking melatonin and in my research I’ve seen many CCRM patients post that the CCRM cocktail dosage is 3mg daily.

The pills I have found come in 300mcg per pill dosage. So to get 3mg, I’d need to take 10 pills. The bottle recommends up to 2 pills daily.

Is anyone actually taking 3mg? Does that just totally knock you out at night?? Is there any worry of overdosing on that that you have heard of?

Thanks!

Ok, so I must have had a total blonde moment! I meant mg not grams! I have corrected my post! Thanks!

So what dosage do your pills come in? Does the bottle have directions for a much smaller dose? Does the 3mg knock you out?

Thanks!

I just bought a bottle from walmart. Each pill is 3mg. It didn’t knock me out, but I was sleeping better on it.

I buy mine at gnc or vitamin world in 3mg tabs… No doesn’t knock me out. I try to take it an hour before bed.
