Have you (anyone) used melatonin? What was your experience like? I have recently taken it 5 times. The only other sleep aid I have taken is the antihistamine diphenhydramine HCL. First, it worked. Second, I had pleasant dreams. Third, I had a pleasant feeling hangover the following day. I was "out out" every time for at least four hours and sometimes up to eight, but I don't know if I was impervious to outside stimulation or not. I asked my wife to wait two hours after I was out and go downstairs and whack things but she thinks I am obsessed enough with this case and refused. I have not yet taken two pills as John said he did.
