Nighttime eating syndrome

For the past few years I have been getting up in the middle of the night and binge eating. The habit has cost me in gaining a huge amount of weight. I would eat everything even remotely appetizing in the house.

It used to irk my parents before I moved in to my new apartment. My mom presented me with research showing melatonin could be used as a treatment and gave me a bottle. I tried it for the first time last night. I woke up in the middle of the night still but I only ate a relatively small amount of food in comparison to the ravaging hunger I usually have to satiate. It has the added benefit of helping me fall asleep. I use the 10mg which is a large dose.
