Q: What is Melatonin?

Q: What does “Fast Dissolve” mean?

Q: What are the possible side effects I might experience from taking Melatonin?
A: The most common side effects associated with melatonin include headache, stomach discomfort, morning grogginess, daytime "hangover" or feeling of a "heavy head."
