Ohio farms wrote:I have tried Melatonin in the past, but after doing some research and talking to my physician I stopped. While Melatonin is advertised as a natural and safe supplement, it is actuality neither. It is a powerful hormone that is produced by the brain to regulate sleep cycles. The daily recommended dose is 1mg/day. Anything over that can be not only disruptive to your sleep patterns, but cause side effects, ie dizziness, nausea, irritability and headaches. Usually the over the counter Melatonin almost always comes in much higher doses than 1 mg.
It may be useful if your melatonin blood levels are low, but that is rare.
I do appreciate your trying to help me Sierra
