Pros: Worked for my daughter.
Cons: Didn't work for me.
I am very much an insomniac. I am a Thyroid Cancer survivor of ten years. Ever since the doc took out my thyroid my body has never been quite the same. Since having radiotherapy I have found myself diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. Patients with Fibromyalgia have a very hard time sleeping. My doctor tells me that a full nights sleep is impartive to my treatment. He tells me that lack of sleep is the number one cause of my pain. I have been struggling with sleep loss for almost ten years now. I have tried many different medications and nothing seems to help me.
As a recommendation from my daughter who also suffers from insomnia, she brags about Melationin TR, 5mg in the 100 tablet bottle put out by Natrol. I had a nice coupon and ended up getting this product for only two dollars. Normally it runs between seven and ten dollars.
Melationin TR, 5mg in the 100 tablet bottle put out by Natrol
Natrol claims that their product will, "Help you fall asleep fast and easy, and help you stay asleep all night." The TR means that it is time released and they claim that it will be a "Eight hour Release." It also contains b6 which is a vitamin. There are 100 tablets per bottle. The serving size is one tablet, so that means 100 nights of sleep acording to them.
Each tablet is unmarked, small enough to be considered easy to swallow and is white. There is a safety seal on each bottle. The bottle is purple.
I have given this product a chance to work. I have given it at least 8 trys with no results. My latest experience was last night. I took one twenty minutes before bedtime as suggested on the bottle. I went to sleep at about eleven pm and tossed and turned till six am this morning. I didn't notice any difference in my sleep patterns. I was not satisfied like my daughter was. She is nineteen and I am almost forty. Not sure if age makes a difference or not. I finally fell asleep at six am and woke up at about 9am feeling very groggy.
Here is the list of ingredients and supplement facts found on the bottle:

I was really hoping this product would work for me. It didn't. I won't recommend, but know some people it has worked for.
