Hey Avis, Nothing on the botte and my friend Google didn't have clear answers either. We'll see if someone that has experience comes along and offers some advice. If not I'll start at the lowest dose (1mg).
Forgot to mention I am 5-4" and like 125ish...

hey I just printed out a pamphlet from this website from this doctor that talks about melatonin for withdrawals and sleep:
http://www.dpeg.org/treatment/methadone_withdrawal.htm
but its for any withdrawals....
Melatonin…dosages vary…this is a hormone released from the pinal gland in the human body at night time for sleep…this is essential for those coming off opioids…in my experience as little as 1 mg to 30 mg has been effective…do what you have  to do…I’ve had addicts coming off $100.00 a day habits sleep 4 hours the first night…start low and add 3-5 mg every half-hour till sleep…research on healthy volunteers using up to 100 mg of melatonin in a single dose shows little side effects…Melatonin is also known as a very strong antioxidant with 1000 times the potency as Vit E…Take only at night when you would be going to bed at the regular time…the room must be dark…that’s the way this hormone is released in the natural state…
Hope this helps you!!
