I've found it definately doesn't keep him asleep but generally if he's tired he will go from about 8-12 with the melatonin & I find that if I get a chunk of 4 hrs I feel so much better. I was really worried about trying it because I'd heard as well that it can affect them when awake & make them groggy etc but it doesn't seem to affect him at all when awake apart from he seems to have a better body clock/sense of what time of day it is. He's still full of beans and rearing to go all day. Its scary because its hard to tell how its going to affect each child without trying it.

Its quite difficult to get an unbiased view on medications.
There are many people knocking it.
I just took a look around the internet and came across a site in America with some useful tips:

The tips suggest things to ensure you get the best possible use of the drug rather than thinking it fails.
But as you said Bessie 4 hours sleep or nothing........well id go for the 4 hours...
