Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product I honestly don't know what I'd do without these. If melatonin works for you, these will work. I get that nice sleepy feeling, find it easier to fall asleep and stay asleep and/or fall back. After about 3 nights they pretty much reset my sleep cycles if I've gotten off track. There is a bit of a hangover the next day. I try to get around that by taking them in late afternoon or early/mid evening so they're more out of my system by rise and shine time. I have read you're not supposed to take them more than 1/2 hour prior to going to bed, but for me this approach works well. Amazing value! January 19, 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by Off to Dreamland! This 1 mg melatonin product helps me get to sleep and stay asleep through the night. I take 1 pill 30 minutes before going to bed and fall asleep without tossing and turning. I wake up rested and without a headache the next morning. i stopped taking the 3 mg tablet because it left me with a headache in the morning. Glad to find something that works for me at such a reasonable price. August 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Melatonin works I did not sleep well for years until I tried melatonin a second time. I started with 1/4 of a mg. After several months I went up to a half a mg. I am 59 years old and I buy 10Mg 3Mg and 1Mg melatonin and adjust my dosage as needed. The 3) 1Mg did not feel as strong as one 3mg but the bottom line is I went from exhausted all the time to well rested. August 19, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by I Get A Much More Relaxing Sleep Than Ever Before I semi-retired about 13 years ago but my body clock kept waking me at 4:30-5 am and I could not go back to sleep. I stay up late, generally 2 am so I was lucky to get 3 or 4 hours and that sleep simply was not restful as I kept waking up plus I often had difficulty going to sleep. I found that taking Melatonin helped me relax if I take it about 1/2 hour before going to bed. Generally I am asleep within 15 or 20 minutes and now I can sleep thru to 6 or 7 and I am able to fall back to sleep for another hour or two which is really helpful. Definitely recommend this to others and have done so. July 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by A Staple in our House This low dose melatonin is very effective and is easy to swallow in its very small capsule form. June 29, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Effective Way better than the stuff at the store which is a much higher milligram. This dosage is all you really need unless you are a giant. Great stuff. February 1, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by very helpful Lately I was not able to sleep past 5:30 or 6. With taking this 1 mg. melatonin around 4 am, I can sleep til 7 or even 8 am. December 22, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Comes In Handy When on vacation or trying to change my sleep schedule, this is the supplement I prefer. This also helps when conditions are more stressful or have consumed something with caffeine too late in the day. Just one capsule works fine. In about an hour, I'm drowsy enough to fall asleep quite easily - and awaken less often during the night. A couple other products that can help get a good night's sleep, are: Valerian Root and Tart Cherry Juice. Swanson carries these, also. March 5, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great sleep aide! This product has helped to improve my sleep quality. I've been using it approximately one year. WOW super price!! February 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by sleepy time Makes me drowsy about 1/2 hour after I take the pill Works for me October 31, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by For Low Dose-Great I but bought this product as a back up, it was such a good value. Have not used it but a few times, I prefer the triple strength. However, if it only takes a small dose to help you sleep, this is the one. October 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by great for when i can't sleep it usually only takes one [1mg] to get me over the bump into sleep mode. September 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by helps me sleep good I tried the 3 mgs. first and sometimes it was too much for me. It can make the eyes dry a little upon waking. I like that I can take one or two of these as needed. I will keep ordering them. September 9, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good product I have trouble falling asleep and melatonin helps me to get in the "sleepy" mood by bedtime. September 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff A must have in my supplement 's August 22, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disappointed While the price certainly seems great, this product was not very effective for me. I had previously been using a store brand which worked very well, so I thought this would be even better, given Swanson's reputation for quality. I tried these for a month and only after increasing dosage to 2 caps did I manage to get somewhat drowsy, but still had trouble falling asleep. I'm going back to the store brand. I hope Swanson will work on improving this product. July 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value I was skeptical having tried melatonin in the past; but I had not tried Swanson's, now I sleep like a baby every night thanks to my husband encouraging me to give this a try. I have told several friends about this melatonin and as a result several people are sleeping better. It may take 2mg or 3mg but this has been a miracle and no "hangover" for me. Thank-you Swanson for yet another great product! June 27, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Helps me fall asleep When I take this product I have no problem falling asleep. My only complaint is that I still have problems staying asleep through the night. I used to take the same product in the 3 mg version but I found no difference when I reduced down to the 1 mg after learning that was the recommended dosage. It does work for getting to sleep. June 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by I take one every night for sleep and it helps me to sleep, as when you get older your body does not produce so much. June 7, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent results! Much more effective than the same product purchased in stores. June 5, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Too many fillers. I ordered this along with 3 mg. tablets. The researchers who wrote the book I have recommended up to 5 mg. for older folks like me. So I take one 3 mg. tablet and two 1 mg. tablets. The one mg. tablets are larger than the 3 mg. tablets and therefore have more fillers. When I use them up, I will just take two 3 mg. tablets. I don't think the extra mg. will hurt me! Melatonin provides many benefits that we miss when our pineal glands start wearing out. I sleep well and awake refreshed. I adapt quickly to time zone changes. April 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Swanson Premium Melatonin Very effective and great price. March 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Works Fast Helps me get back to sleep quickly when I wake up in the middle of the night. Quality melatonin at a great price! March 14, 2013
