Liquid Melatonin (1mg) Review/Giveaway

LIQUID MELATONIN (1MG) REVIEW

Let me please state for the record, I am NOT a doctor, and am certainly not giving medical advice to anyone reading this review.   This review is of our personal experience using Melatonin at the recommendation of Lucas's Pediatrician.   I wanted to share my experience using this product with Lucas for other parents who were advised, by their pediatrician, to try Melatonin with their child.  Of course, before giving your child anything new, you should check with your pediatrician and/or doctor to be sure this is right for your child before using.

I've shared about our sleeping issues that we have with Lucas in the past.  It's been a rough road and his doctors told us to put him on Melatonin to see if it helped. We heard about a liquid Melatonin but couldn't find it!  Not one of our pharmacies in our area carry it.  Some even stated that they didn't know that it existed.

We were left to take 3 mg tablets, cut them in half, crush 1.5 mg and sneak it into something that Lucas likes to eat!  For a child who has no issues with eating this may be all right.   It's not all right with Lucas having so many eating issues,  this is an all out mess to do every night for us!  Its hard enough getting Lucas to eat normally, now we're stuck trying to get him to eat something with crushed up pills in it! It was rough but the Melatonin really seemed to help him so we've been doing it.

On my search to find a liquid Melatonin I came across Natrol.  They make a 1mg Liquid Melatonin.  I was SO excited to find it that I wrote to the company to tell them our frustration with finding it.  
They were so wonderful to talk with.  I told them that a LOT of our special needs children need to use Melatonin and it would wonderful if we could find it.  Well they offered to send me some liquid Melatonin for Lucas to try and some to give to our viewers who are also going through the same problem.

I have to say there is a HUGE difference in using the Liquid Melatonin versus the pill version.  I was told once that children w/SPD have a hard time absorbing certain vitamins and medicines into their system.  Whether its true or not I can tell you for a FACT that the liquid worked 100 times better than the pill.  The pill never actually made Lucas tired.  It helped to calm him down a little bit the next day after taking it for a few months but never did a thing for his sleep.  
I have been giving Lucas the Liquid Melatonin for the last 5 days and it is simply amazing at the differences in the two different versions of Melatonin.  While taking the Liquid version he is ready for bed within 20-30 minutes after taking it.  He has an entire night of sleep, its not a restless sleep, like it was with the pill.  

I can't tell you how over the moon I am with this Liquid Melatonin.

I visited Natrol's facebook page and left them a comment about how this could help me...and I want to say I am a true believer in Melatonin, my son has Asperger's and he has never ever slept okay until now! Melatonin helps us get through school days a lot better and any parents who have kids with sleeping issues should definitely try it, it's like a miracle!
