MidNite sleep aid - no help for chronic pain wakefulness

MidNite is a sleep aid with Melatonin and some herbs that's meant to help you sleep or get back to sleep. I am a restless sleeper due to chronic pain. I awake in the middle of the night almost every night, either from pain or because it's become part of my regular schedule. I tried MidNite hoping it would help, even a little. First, I took it before going to bed. Still woke up just as often. Then I tried taking it when I woke up. Didn't help me go to sleep any faster. And, one night for non-pain reasons I was having a hard time drifting off, and so I tried it then. Again, no help. So this product does nothing for me.

I guess that means I have plenty of Melatonin in my system? I guess I'm not really supprised, but keep in mind that not getting enough sleep sucks. The samples of MidNite were free, so I figured I had nothing to loose.
