Hi there, I know that some of you have been using Melatonin to help with sleep. I am presently trying to wean myself off the clonozepam which I also take along with gen. Flexeril for sleep. I don't think I have been have alot of bad reactions to weaning, but is is just that I am not sleeping as well and going back to my getting up a few times during the night to go to the bathroom. I am only taking the Clonezepam before bed (0.5 mg) and have presently just gotten to the removal of i/4 of a pill. My doctor had mentioned 1/2 pill but I figured I would start at removing 1/4 first. Well, since this has been going on for awhile I figured that maybe as I am trying to taper I could take a small dosage of Melatonin with my 3/4 of the pill, and then continue to wean off when I start sleeping better and hopefully do not have to many other side effects. I have been googling and searching and trying just to find how many mcg. = a mg.or vias verss. I did think that the mcg was the smaller dosage. Who knows now. There were three bottles of different dosages there at the store. I took the one for 300 mcg. the others were mcg dosages. Did I get the right dosage pill for the smaller dosage and how many of them should I take to start out or do I need to bring it back for the 1 and 3 mg jars/doages? That is what I think they had there. Also, do any of you take it long term? I keep reading that this should just be for very short term use (of course those people do not have FM, etc (-: ). Any information on melatonin and these crazy dosages would be very helpful. Thanks allot !! Hugs, Granni .
