@lorena1egas I have read that taking over 3mg can cause nightmares. I use melatonin but never more than 3mg. How much are you taking?

Hi I am not using. I am afraid of using it then everytime Ive tried by my own to take it I have experienced terrible vivid dreams. Usually when my estrogen replacement fluctuates i have nightmares but thats on control with taking an oral dosage. I am sure the doctors at Mayo prefer melatonin instead of clonazepam for rem sleep but I am worry that I will spend 2 months with vivid dreams till my body get used to the melatonin. Have you or someone here experienced the same while on melatonin and how do you manage to control those nasty symptoms as vivid dreams that are big sleep disturbances too
