Product Description & Melatonin contradiction
Excerpted from the website:
You are not alone in your battle to get precious sleep, with the stress and pressures placed on the average person today, over 70 million Americans have trouble falling asleep and even staying asleep. Many people affected by sleep loss are tired of taking habit forming pills, expensive prescriptions and OTC products that leave them feeling exhausted the next day. You want, need and deserve a powerful, safe and above all a natural answer to your sleep loss problems. Well, Dormanex SR TM is exactly what you are looking for. Dormanex SR TM is for people who are serious about getting their sleep back the natural way and want to wake up feeling refreshed. Dormanex SR TM was developed by the top natural scientists in the world using a patent pending formula and technology that uses a Strip Release (SR) technology to deliver you a highly advanced natural sleep aid. Dormanex SR TM has active, natural ingredients that have been clinically studied to aid in sleep and relaxation.

Dormanex SRTM is for Occasional Sleeplessness - Individual results may vary.
These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease such as insomnia. Dormanex SRTM is a dietary supplement.
How much Melatonin does this product really have?
Link A say's 5mg's of Melatonin (see bottom of page) http://www.dormanex.com/landing3.asp
Link B say's 3mg's of Melatonin http://www.dormanex.com/landing-ingredients.asp
Use as a Dietary Supplement
Studies from Massachusetts Institute of Technology have said that melatonin pills sold as supplements contain three to ten times the amount needed to produce the desirable physiologic nocturnal blood melatonin level for enhancement of sleep. Dosages are designed to raise melatonin levels for several hours to enhance quality of sleep, but some studies suggest that smaller doses (for example 0.3 mg as opposed to 3 mg) are just as effective at improving sleep quality. Large doses of melatonin can even be counterproductive: Lewy et al provide support to the "idea that too much melatonin may spill over onto the wrong zone of the melatonin phase-response curve" (PRC). In one of their subjects, 0.5 mg of melatonin was effective while 20 mg was not.
Melatonin Dosage and Frequency guidelines
It's best not to take high dose melatonin product on a nightly basis. The following are some concerns:
1) Tolerance develops in some people when melatonin is used every night. After a few weeks some find that melatonin is not inducing or maintaining sleep as well as it did in the past. To avoid the creeping up of tolerance, melatonin should be used at most every other night, or preferably every third night. The dose should be the lowest amount that works, such as 1 mg or less. Some users find that a dose as little as 0.3 mg taken around 8 pm can induce sleep. It is ok to occasionally take a high dose such as 3 to 5 mg if needed, for instance jet lag or shift work changes. Melatonin is not toxic at high doses when used infrequently. New research suggests a low dose of melatonin at 0.3 mg taken earlier in the evening may be as effective as a higher dose taken closer to bedtime.
2) Tiredness, low mood, or fatigue can develop when people use melatonin every night, especially in doses more than 2 or 3 mg. Some people feel sleepy or groggy the next day with the urge to take naps.
3) We still don't know the long-term effects on the immune and hormonal systems of chronic melatonin use. Also, high doses of melatonin used nightly without breaks could possibly interfere with optimal sex drive and have an untoward influence on gonads

The researchers found, that commercially available melatonin pills contain 10 times the effective amount. And at that dose, "after a few days it stops working, " said Wurtman, director of MIT's Clinical Research Center and the Cecil H. Green Distinguished Professor. When the melatonin receptors in the brain are exposed to too much of the hormone, they become unresponsive.

    I have been pursued over a number of days to take a free trial only $1.99 S&H of a sleep aid product endorsed by many famous people and news networks. The agent at the company said my credit card would be billed for that amount only. Subsequently, I checked my account and it was billed for $101.00 + the $1.99. The agent swore on several occasions to me that the charge would be limited to $1.99. The product involved is a sleep aid and has a very fancy ( lots of filming and testimony presented by a sweet young lady ) website at www.dormanex.com which also professes that the charge to you will only be $1.99. All lies and misleading! Merry Christmas the rip-offs begin on the internet. This company has done this to others and I will report it to the FTC and other appropriate agencies. Damn Google for allowing one to be exposed to known deceit. The Companies name is LifeLabs International LLC.

    3. Problem:
    I agreed to a free trial over the phone. I asked him if there would be any future charges or if I would need to do anything to cancel this free trial. He said no and assured me they would only ship more product if I called them or ordered online. I authorized a $2.99 shipping fee to my card only! Today I received a shipment notice, I then checked my account and it had been billed *12/08/2008 159.35 I called them and they refused to credit the account. I have since gone online and found numerous other accounts of the exact same fraud.

    I have the same problem. I got the run around with the phone # provided. They kept sending me to the main menu. I never got to talk to anyone. I've tried live chat and can't catch anyone to "chat" with, but I left several messages trying to cancel. Also email is never answered. I have been trying to cancel since the first week of the 14 day trial. Yesterday I received a $159.00 package I did'nt order either.

    When you sign up for the free trial you have to agree to the terms and conditions which specifies that you are signing up for a subscription; we also include a reminder notice with the free trial kit. If you cancel within the 14 day trial you are not charged or shipped anything. Simply return the product for a refund.

    I have one better - I never RECEIVED my free trial and was charged. I didnt even have the opportunity to cancel. I consider this a scam and will pursue all legal recourse against Dormanex including a letter to the Better Business Bureau. I was told I need to send the shipment back (at my expense) and wait 8-10 days for a refund. I am not happy.

    Dormanex - Deceitful Selling/Unauthorized Withdrawl
    Dormanex/ LifeLabs International
    Miami
    Florida
    United States

    I recently found myself going through the same BS as all these other people. I was told about Dormanex by my Mom and decided it sounded like a great deal. So I went to the website to get the "FREE" Trial. Before I could finish, the website "experienced problems", and crashed.(Not giving me a chance to view the policies) A day later I get a phone call from an "employee" claiming that their website had crashed but they had all my information except my credit card info. I informed the gentleman that I wouldn't give it out on the phone, but feel free to email me. Well no email ever came, yet a week later the sample did. Confused on how they billed me "without my credit card information" (Not to mention the address was wrong), I wasn't too upset, since I had planned on paying the 3.97 for shipping. Now, a month later, I find my account has had the infamous 159.35 charge taken from it, as well as 30.00 overdraft charge. When I called back, I got the same "return it, 7-10 business days, yadda yadda." Well thank God for this website, because of it and other stories, I made sure to call back and get tracking number for UPS, their address (which I verified with them on the phone as legit, per UPS) and cancellation number. I ended up filing fraud claim with my bank and a report with Better Business Bureau and told my mom to check her accounts. Thank God she did, since the next day they were getting ready to do the same to her. Hopefully word spreads and people see this for what it really is...a sneaky underhanded way to take money from others. If you product is that good, people will order more on their own accord! P.S. I also noticed that as of 1/6/09 (the day I spoke with these people) they did amend their policies to include a section on liability of loss of profits due to misunderstanding. lol CROOKS!

    Our customer service reps are available at 1-877-210-738, there is no problem in cancelling (we do try to find out why the customer is cancelling). Most people find that Dormanex works for them, but we give the risk-free trial so you can decide for yourself. The $159.35 charge is for the next shipment of the product which you are made aware of in the terms and conditions prior to placing your order. There is even a reminder of the "free-trial" period sent on a bright pink paper with each shipment. We are nto trying to be sneaky or underhanded in order to make money, we simply sell a product we believe in whihc helps our consumers get a good nights rest.

    Dave Griswold You are being deceptive in your comments . I never even got my free trial and my account was still charged for 3.97 plus 3 months later you took 159.35 out of my account & shipped me a box I didnt order.By the way I never opened the box & I caleed the company in Miami Fl. and I was guaranteed I would recieve a full refund including free trial shipping fee. I sent the box back unopened on Jan. 8th and have not recieved my refund. So what do you have to say about that Dave Griswold!!!

    I just placed a complaint with my bank about dormanex. I already paid the 159.00 three months ago from my account even though I cancelled service. TODAY I look at my bank account and Dormanex charged me AGAIN! Not only have I received nothing nor do I want to, but they had NO BUSINESS going into my account takin unauthorized funds. Next step is the BBB and my attorney general because I am not allowing scammers to just go into my account anytime they want to.

    I ordered your sample and just paid shipping and handling. All of a sudden I received a package that I sent back on January 18th, 2009 and my credit card was charged $79.68 TWICE. You should of received this package by now. Now those 2 amounts made me go over my credit limit and I'm being charged for the over limt fee.
