Q: What is Melatonin?
A: Also known as the “sleep hormone,” melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the pineal gland in the brain. It regulates your sleep-wake cycle, telling your body when it’s time for sleep.
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." If you feel groggy, heavy headed or a hangover feeling, you are probably taking too much for your body or are taking it too late at night. Give yourself a couple of days off and try a lower milligram.
Q: Who should not use Melatonin?
A: If you are taking medication, have any medical condition, are pregnant or lactating, have an autoimmune condition or depressive disorder, consult a physician before using this product. Do not take while operating machinery or driving a vehicle. Not for use by children under 4 years of age. Consult a physician before use in children.
Q: What is the maximum amount of Melatonin I can take each day?
A: Experts indicate that short-term use (i.e., 3 months or less) of melatonin in a daily amount of 10 mg does not raise concern of harm for healthy adults. Long term use at this dosage requires recommendation and supervision by a health care professional. Individual results will vary using melatonin and sometimes taking less is better.
