    Took it at 8 pm. Went to bed 10:30 pm. Awakened by stomach pain at 2 pm. What I call a colotis attack. When you need to hold/push your thumb into your right side (colon?) to ease the spasm. Then have to rush to the toilet to relieve the pain. Anyone else have a similar reaction to melatonin?

    I took it to try to straighten out my circadian rhythm and instead it make it even more out-of-sync.

    If you take Melatonin for the first time I suggest starting with 1 mg for 30 days. I had some problems during the first nights but now everything is fine.

    I've also heard that the brand (quality) makes a difference. It just gave me a headache when I tried it but perhaps it was the brand. I think I got it at Walmart not a health food store, if that matters.

    The brand I bought is Pro Health. The 2.5 is the only dose they sell.
    Thanks,
