    Hi Jam, or anyone else out there,

    I just thought I needed to make this a separate post as my last one started at being about Melatonin and ended up about B/P.

    I took the 300 mg tab last night a little after I took my Flexeril and Clonezapam - that I am trying to cut back on (the clonazpam), slowly. Well, first of all I think I might need to take them earlier than I did. I forgot about them and took them to close to bedtime and of course had to take them with water. So, I still kept waking up ( a couple of times) during the night and when I do I do have to go. Not that is the cause of me waking up.

    I am thinking that I will have to up my dosage some but how long do think I should wait before I up my melatonin dosage ? I will probably do this for a short while (not sure how short though) and then try another 1/2 tab of the Melatonin. Does the Melatonin make you tired right away or does it take awhile? I know we are all different but was curious about it.

    Also, when you take your nite supplements do you take them all together? I am wondering if I should take everything together or wait a bit to take the Melatonin after I have taken the meds before I take the supplement. I know your situation is different.

    Just thought I would update on you on my Melatonin situation. Hopefully something will work or I will just have to go back on the small dosage of Clon/not that it is a lg dosage and only at night. I just hate to be dependant on something. Good grief !! However, it cannot hurt to try.

    Thanks for the help and suggestions.

    Well, this is one big experiment for me. I will have to decide whether to try another 1/2 tonight or a whole one.

    Do you think I should go ahead and try higher dosage tonight? I just don't want to end up to drugged or should I say groggy. Have you ever felt groggy the next day on the melatonin?? Or shoud I say groggier than usual (-: ?? For me I almost always feel that way anyhow.

    I see you take your Melatonin about an hour before going to bed. We usually go about 10:30 or should I say sometimes we watch the news in bed at 10:00 and turn out the lights at 10:30. I try to remember to take the meds about 9:30 but was just trying to decide whether to take the Melatonin at the same time, before or after.

    I guess eveyone is different in how it effects the and how quickly (the meds to).

    Thanks so far on your help. If you have any thoughts please let me know.
