These work well in helping me stay asleep throughout the night.
Douglas Laboratories Controlled Release Melatonin, 2mg has improved my sleep, it helps me sleep longer without waking. I use another tablet that is fast acting to get to sleep, and then right before bed I use the Douglas product, to help me stay asleep longer. I have tried many melatonin supplements but this particular one seems to help me stay asleep longer than any other product. It has been a huge improvement.
I've had stomach pains with other melatonin, but this dosage is gentle and effective.
