Helps You Fall Asleep But Can Cause Morning Drowsiness

By 

from Pittsburgh, PA

Comments about Rite Aid Melatonin:

Most stores that carry melatonin only stock the 3 milligram dose; Rite Aid carries both the 3 and 10 milligram doses but the 10 milligram dose can be extremely hard to find in some areas. There is only one Rite Aid location in a 25 mile radius that stocks the stronger dose. They do sell it online at their website but when I buy things like this I like to buy them in person so I can check the bottle, safety seal and expiration date.

Compared to other brands of melatonin, this performs the same and does help you relax, fall asleep and stay asleep. If you are used to taking the 3 milligram dose and then switch to the 10 milligram dose you may feel groggy or drowsy in the morning. This could happen for two to ten days; every person is different and your body might need more time to get used to the dosage. If it is something that is a long term problem you can split the 10 milligram pills so you are only getting half a dose. That makes them a little stronger than the 3 milligram pills but not as strong as the 10 milligram pills.

As far as price is concerned, for being a store brand product these are more expensive than other brands that I buy when I need to use something to help me fall asleep or stay asleep. I buy the stronger dose from Rite Aid because it's hard to find melatonin in that dose anywhere else.

These are easy to swallow and start working in about fifteen to twenty minutes; they do not completely knock you out so if the phone rings you are going to hear it. You might have a little trouble having a conversation on the phone if you decide to answer it but you aren't going to be completely sedated to the point where you can't respond if someone tries to wake you up.

Helps you sleep

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Rite Aid Melatonin:

Rite Aid Melatonin is a great product if you are looking for a natural product to help you sleep. Too many times sleeping pills contain chemicals that may be harsh for your body. Melatonin is naturally produced by your body when you sleep, so this is not some type of foreign chemical for you body.

I have taken Melatonin a few times when I am having difficulty sleeping, and it really works. Sometimes it works too well, and you have to be careful to make sure you wake up in time for work or whatever you are doing for the day.

The Rite Aid brand of Melatonin is gentle on your stomach, and it never caused any bad side effects for me. It's also really cheap. You don't have to worry that if you purchase it you may decide to not take the Melatonin and then be out a lot of money.

I was also told this is something that dogs can take to keep them calm, but I have not tried it yet. My dog has separation anxiety and tears apart the house when no one is home, so we were told that this is safe for dogs to take as a way to stay calm in stressful situations.

Saved my sanity!

Comments about Rite Aid Melatonin:

I have suffered from insomnia for as long as I can remember. My doctor wanted to prescribe me a medicine to help but I wasn't too fond of taking prescription sleeping pills so I did some research online a few years ago looking for more natrual sleep aids. I found melatonin being siggested by many and it had pretty good reviews. I stopped in to my local Rite Aid and found their store brand of melatonin. I was happy to see that they had a store brand version beause while it included the same exact ingredients as the other brands, it was significantly cheaper. Melatonin not only helps my body relax and fall asleep but I actually stay asleep and when I wake up I don't feel exhausted like I have with other over the counter sleeping pills. I only take this when i really need it because I have read that there are not many studies on the side effects of long term use of melatonin. So, while its a natural sleep aid, there are still some risks, big or small, of taking it. I also noticed that when I do take this (only one 3mg pill) my dreams are very vivid and sometimes have been nightmares, not every time I took melatonin, but enough times to mention that this may happen while taking it. Melatonin really has been an amazing product for me and has helped so much with my sleeping problems. Also, for those who don't like pills, these can be dissolved and are actually quite small and easy to swallow.

finally.............sleep!

By 

from Aurora, CO

Comments about Rite Aid Melatonin:

Melatonin has changed my life. I have had insomnia for years and finally someone suggested that I try Melatonin. Finally.......... sleep. I still don't get a full 8 hours but taking 3 mg about an hour before I want to sleep is making it so that I fall asleep fast and sleep deeply for about 6 hours. It has been wonderful. I wake up rested and not groggy, I have more energy that I have had in years!

Works Great... but be careful.

By 

from Simi Valley, CA

Comments about Rite Aid Melatonin:

If you have occasional insomnia... try this product as well as warm milk or almonds, valerian root, hot tea, or breathing exercises and meditation before bed. For chronic insomnia don't take this or valerian root for extended periods of time. Not only do you become dependant, but scientists don't know the full effect/ consequences of using melatonin often. It occurs naturally in our bodies, but too much of anything is bad news. Bascially, use for short-term sleeping problems.
