I think I have advanced sleep phase syndrome

Postby asteron » Tue Feb 12, 2019 2:35 am

On an average day, my tiredness begins in the late afternoon and then around 6.00pm - 8.00pm is the time I most want to go to bed and feel very sleepy. If I go to bed within this period I manage to fall asleep straight away and have decent sleep until waking up between 1.00am - 4.00am, and then I struggle to get back to sleep.

I find that if I push past 8.00pm I in fact struggle to fall asleep as I have missed the 'window'. For example, if I try to sleep at 7.00pm I will fall asleep straight away, whereas if I try to sleep at midnight I will struggle to fall asleep and may not fall asleep at all.

Does anyone else feel that they have advanced sleep phase syndrome?

When do you think is the best time to take melatonin for this, and would time release melatonin be better?
