"Happy with my purchase. Had a hard time finding dissolving melatonin at the stores I usually shop so I was happy to have it on hand again! I split them in two and give them to my kids about half an hour before bed. The boys have a terrible time getting to sleep when school starts so this really seems to help...they are asleep much faster so better rested for the day. My only complaint (well the boys complain) that they take quite a while to dissolve in your mouth."
