Re: Melatonin

You could try a small dose first, such as 500 mcg. Then try 2 capsules, 3 and so on. Everyone is different, with 3 mg good for me and someone I know zonked out on that amount, with 500 mcg just right. When managing it with RLS it can be a balancing act. With melatonin you may get better quality slee...

Re: Nicotine Mints - Personal Success

Nicotine during the day will make things worse, for me anyway.

You need to take the mints when you wake and are cramping.

Bad nights need more, and more frequently.

I still do a stretch and a mouth full of water, and then back to sleep.

Inhaler should do nicely.

Then I went into extreme fat loss mode and used...
