Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Very Effectively Because of the time release factor I'm able to have uninterrupted sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Good Idea the Works Very Well! The sustained release is much more effective in helping you stay asleep. Great value for the money spent. I bought 4 bottles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite melatonin I've tried a few melatonin supplements as I work the "off shift" and it really messes with my sleep cycle. I've had great success with these dual release tabs, and they are a wonderful value. I ordered a 10 month supply during the last sale!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Less effective than hoped This product is not very effective for me at helping me fall asleep, and did nothing to help me stay asleep through the night. My wife and I had the same experience with it. Maybe a double-dose would do the trick, but I never tried.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I might be dreaming, but... Tried this product after reading several of the reviews. If I wake up half way through the night, I easily go right back to sleep! Wake up feeling rested. Easy to swallow..
Date published: 2018-01-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality control during manufacturing The pill consists of half white and half yellow. Lately in almost every bottle, the pill is only half there. Half is missing. It is dual release and need both half to work correctly. Quality Control should take a look into this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual Release Melatonin This is the best stuff ever. I work at night and take this when I get home. I fall asleep in about 15 mins and don't wake up at all. Quality sleep is amazing!
Date published: 2016-12-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Melatonin Really like the dual release. Don't wake up half way through the night. Nice size easy to swallow.
Date published: 2016-11-21
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Needs to be coated I have no trouble swallowing supplements - except this one. It instantly begins to dissolve and tastes terrible. Too bad since it's a good price and timed release melatonin is tricky to find. I'll go back to the brand I buy at the store.
Date published: 2016-04-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sleep Aid The duel release system really makes a difference in the quality of my sleep. I don't wake up in the middle of the night. Also a good night's sleep aides in better mood all day and at least for me, faster healing when I'm just not feeling well. Also great price compared to other sources

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Extended Release Melatonin I found that this works well for keeping me asleep if I have trouble waking up at night. It works well for that purpose and I recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quickly Go To Sleep! This is the BEST!!! The initial Melatonin on the one side of the tablet dissolves quickly and makes you 'sleepy'...the other half of the tablet is 'timed release' and keeps you asleep through the night...FANTASTIC!!!
Date published: 2015-09-30
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best melatonin yet I've tried several types of melatonin and have found that this one is my favorite. It works super-fast and gives me a good night's rest. One side is quick-release and the other side is sustained-release for all night effectiveness.
Date published: 2014-10-24
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible! I read the reviews on this so I thought I would give it a try because I have had sleep issues my whole life... I don't know what those other reviewers are talking about. I woke up so groggy with a terrible headache. My headache lasted until almost noon! This works just like that over the counter stuff giving you that terrible 'hangover' feeling in the morn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Better than others I have used Melatonin in the past, some of stronger mg, however I get the best results with Swanson's Dual Release 3MG Melatonin because it not only helps me fall asleep faster but I stay asleep longer, due to the dual release dissolving separately throughout the night.
Date published: 2014-07-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I was having trouble staying asleep and would wake up at 3 in the morning and couldn't get back to sleep which was so frustrating. A friend recommend I take Melatonin...I went to Swanson and placed a order....and I've been very happy with results. I now sleep the retire night. I'm very pleased with this product. I will order again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nigh night For me this works. Like the dual release better than standard. Feel it working, head to bed and nights out. If I don't sleep long enough I am groggy in am. Try it, they'll take it back if it doesn't work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best this is a very good deal from price to item quality i would highly recommend this item
Date published: 2014-04-08
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual Release is the key This dual release melatonin 3 mg is better at keeping me and my husband asleep through the night than the higher dose melatonin. Will continue to order.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from sleep, glorious sleep! A natural part of the aging process is diminishing melatonin production, after years of progressively poorer sleep, and a reluctance to get a doctor's prescription, I finally broke down and got this supplement. The effects were immediate, I had the best nights sleep in years. Since then, 5 years, I have been taking this nightly, and it has remained effective. As an added bonus, melatonin is a antioxident. I have given bottles to friends, and all have had good results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I really like this product Started using this product recently. It works better than the regular melatonin for me. Sleeping much better now.
Date published: 2014-02-26
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Like a Dream After several weeks of waking up at 4am; my mother sent me some Swanson's Dual Release Melatonin. It worked the first night and every night since. I highly recommend it for those who wake up in the middle of the night then can't get back to sleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Night's Sleep I have been taking the dual release melatonin for a few months now and I have to say, I am sleeping better than I have in years. I fall to sleep faster and if I wake up in the night, I'm usually able to go back to sleep until morning. The best part is I when I wake up, there's no residual grogginess. Prior to taking this product, I was generally sleeping about 3 to 4 hours a night and usually waking up at least once every hour during that time. Overall, getting a longer, better quality of sleep has made a tremendous improvement in how I feel throughout the day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Melatonin I am thoroughly pleased with Swanson's Dual-Release Melatonin. This product is less than half the price of the one I used to buy. And it works better too! The dual-release formula truly helps me to achieve desired results for a full 8 hours. I could not be happier with it.
Date published: 2013-11-11
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps you asleep This is a great product to use if you have trouble waking up in the middle of the night. This is very effective with the dual release helping you stay asleep.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helps keep him asleep My husband uses this to help him stay asleep and/or get back to sleep during the night. He is sleeping longer in the mornings, too!
Date published: 2013-09-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zzzzzzz This is a gentle but effective sleep aid. I have used this product for over a year. I go off to sleep fairly quick. If I forget to take it and wake up during the night, I have a difficult time going back to sleep.
