Melatonin - How much should I take?

My psychiatrist suggested I try Melatonin instead of Tylenol PM to help me sleep. What is the normal dosage? I forgot to ask her how much I should take. The last couple of days I have been taking 2mg. They are 1mg pills. Is this too much?

Thanks!

Do you know why you can't sleep?

Re: Melatonin - How much should I take?

I think it's a combination of a lot of things. Depression, anxiety (racing thoughts when I try too), I sleep in a recliner because I don't have a bed but I will next week, and my cats. I don't think it's that bad where I have insomnia or something, but bad enough where I am tired during the day from lack of sleep. If that makes sense...
