Sometimes I have trouble sleeping at night. I’m not sure if it’s my age or what. I’ve heard others use Melatonin to help with their sleep problems. I had never tried it until now.
This post was created in partnership with Mom Buzz Media. I received this product free of charge in exchange for my honest opinion.
Well turns out this stuff worked like a charm on me. I don’t take a lot of drugs if I can help it. So when I do take something it tends to really work. For instance benedryl which doesn’t affect my husband at all puts me to sleep for hours. Hours! I had slept in the day I took this so I thought for sure I’d be up until midnight or later. But I followed the directions and decided to see if I could take the one pill of melatonin 20 minutes before bed. This is one that dissolves under the tongue. It was strawberry tasting and pleasant. The consistency reminded me of a tums kind of tablet. It was easy to go down and tasted pretty good. My girl and I had been watching iCarly on tv. I could tell that I was beginning to get sleepy about 20 minutes after I took the pill. She looked over at me and said “Mom, it looks like you are getting ready to fall asleep.” She was right. She left and let me have quiet time and tv before bed.
I was probably asleep within 10 minutes of her leaving. I woke up at some point and thought “Okay I should just get up because I won’t go back to sleep.” The next thing I know my dear husband is getting up and getting ready for work. So it did get me to sleep and I got a great nights sleep. It was amazing. I will be using this from now on when I’m not able to go to sleep. Have you tried melatonin to get to sleep? How did it work?
