I have lots of trouble sleeping too, but the liquid version of melatonin has helped a lot. Just have to be consistent with what time you take it (the same time each night).

I wonder if the liquid version might work better for you post op?

Hi Marescolt, did you find they did actually help you sleep,i had my sleeve done mid December 2012 but have always been a bad sleeper so since the sleeve it has not changed much and it is not the sleeve that has caused it as i was like it prior to it. As i have not taken them before i am hoping they will work,have actually just taken the first one for tonight so will see how it goes,does it need to build up a bit in your system or they work fairly quickly for sleep ?
Thanks for letting me know there is another sleever out there who takes them.

Melatonin for Sleep. I have always been a bad sleeper,can get to sleep quick but wake so many times,i wear a Fitbit tracker which shows my sleep rhythms, shows i can stir up to 22 times a night,i get up twice to go to the toilet.I saw my GP today and he was so pleased with my weight loss but i still have awful tiredness and i am religious with taking all my vits and iron etc and evreything else i need to.I did not want some addictive sleep tablet as they make you worse.My doc has put me on Circadin/ Melatoninwhich is a naturally produced hormone.I did ask if these were safe to take with the sleeve as they are so release,he said yes as they are a natural hormone.Is there any one else out there who has tried these for bad sleep etc ?? i am waiting for my dietician to get back to me about these,so i am hoping they are ok to take being natural.Being a sleever i tend to check and double check every medical thing i have to put in my mouth that goes down to my stomach. I am starting to think the tiredness i still have is from my bad sleep patterns and not sleeve related. Any one else take the Circadin/Melatonin ? I need total dark and quiet to sleeve and am getting roller shutters put on my windows in about a week so i hope they will help me sleep better by making my room heaps darker etc.
