    Hope it's safe; I take a 10 mg Melatonin with a 500 mg. Magnesium tablet 2 or 3 hours before bedtime.
    Adding the Magnesium tablet was a big help. My family physician recommended this and it works.

    I take a bed time supplement when I lay down for bed on the truck, and I've never had an issue.. It has melatonin/Magnesium as well as theanine and a few other ingredients. Never need it when I'm home, but on the truck it helps me sleep like a baby.

    Did you find yourself more refreshed with the magnesium in the morning ?

    Most people are deficient in Magnesium. After getting blood tests last year, I supplement Magnesium, D3, vitamin C, zinc, fish oil regularly. Better to get it from whole foods, but sometime OTR healthy food options are scarce
    Edit- forgot I also take a B Complex with a liver capsule. Gets me a ton of B12 and other good minerals. You know it's working because it makes you pee neon green a few hours later Haha

    I take this, one capsule twice a day.
    Found it on Sam's Club online shopping.

    I think diet plays a huge roll in a person's health and well-being. I eat a lot of fresh fruits and vegetables with lean meats and I take it easy on the carbs. It comes down to small choices like lets say you in the store for a snack instead of choosing a little Debbie cake, bag of chips and a 44oz. Fountain soda get an apple/banana, sunflower seeds and a water.
