Yes, i have a headache the next morning even after Source Natural's 0.1mg sublingual. Not worth the hangover for me.
Also, I found progesterone to be a sedative.
aha!! bingo, i cant tolerate progesterone at all.
took 0.25mg melatonin last night and still woke with a headache.
circular wrote:consumerlab.com goes some distant to help identify supplement brands that pass some independent testing (by supplement). In the case of melatonin they checked for lead contamination and that the supplement has the amount it claims. Also that it disintegrated properly. A good number of brands passed at least that much testing.

Back to melatonin: I've tried very high-dose melatonin (up to 10 mg. at one point -- 3.x mg. at bedtime, again at hour 2 or so, and again and hour 4 or so.). No help, no headaches. Nothing good or bad.
I've never trusted time-release formulations of anything. Gut differences are enormous.
P.S. The best sleep solution (aside from pigging out at night) I ever had was 5 mg. oxycodone 5-7 hours before bedtime. Curious. Had some for post-surg. pain. Did this on my fasting days (every 3 days). Here in the US one can't talk about opioids without getting surprised cat jumping up a meter reactions from people -- above all doctors. Oh well.
