Melatonin for happiness

Hi, I have just recently started using melatonin to induce happiness.  I find that it may be helping but it is so far making my sleeping patters a little irregular.  Does anyone have any experience with this?
 
Thanks,

Never heard of it being used for "happiness" - just for sleep.  Sometimes I have happy dreams, though.
 
Perhaps that's why your sleep patterns are screwed up.  It's not meant to be taken during the day.

Thornhill is on the outskirts of Toronto so that would place the poster in Ontario and about 30 minutes from Major I would think.

that would be Thornhill ON though, wouldn't it, Carol?  I just haven't heard of a province called OOE before.  
Figured maybe I'd missed one. Wink

I read something about how it stimulates endorphines in the penial gland or somthing.  A famous philosopher named Descartes said that that pineal gland is the 'seat of the soul'.  Maybe that is connected?

Good find but doesn't seem to pertain to CH other than effecting body temp and other things controlled by our hypothamathingamajig Wink

That explains it ... The pineal gland is the seat of the soul, and we have heavy souls that sat too long on the pineal gland and crushed it.  Now we lack melatonin!   Grin
 
Seriously, though, melatonin has been shown to help with cluster headaches.  Not a silver bullet, but helpful for about half of people in placebo controlled trials.

It sounds good, but I've tried that and I found that it was actually keeping me up all night!  Now I tried taking it in the AM, but it still seems to be keeping me up at night.  Go figure...
