Can Melatonin Cause Constipation
Taking Lexapro, naltrexone, traxadone, wellbutrin, (bupropion) melatonin, ramipril, asprin, and trilipix. Drink tea, what's causing constipation and large prostate?
Not sure: What evidence points to a "large prostate" - can you elucidate?
I have been taking melatonin for 2 weeks now and the past week I have been constipated? Also been having acid reflex
Unlikely: I've never heard of anyone having trouble stopping melatonin, but people can become psychologically dependent on anything. If you google "melatonin dependence" you'll find a few people out there who claim they become dependent on it. I consider this fairly unlikely though.
NOT usually: Melatonin is a hormone found naturally in the body. It's main use is for insomnia. Melatonin seems to be able to shorten the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, but only by about 12 minutes! (according to one research study) the usual dose 1-3mg. Melatonin can raise blood pressure in people who are taking certain medications to control blood pressure-so not recommended in hypertension (hi bp).
Melatonin: Melatonin is a natural hormone produced by the pineal gland, and involved in maintain circadian rhythm, and regularize sleep-wake cycles. It is very unusual to have memory loss from such product, but side effects are common in certain individuals. There will be interesting to know if you are susceptible to such adverse effect.
Melatonin: Regular advised dosage will cause no problem and should be taken one hour before going to bed
Melatonin causes too much of a "hangover" affect on me, im already taking valerian, so what else can I take that won't cause the hangover feeling?
Unusual: With melatonin, and I would consider dropping the dose. In germany, where herbal meds are fully regulated and tested, the usual dose to start with melatonin is 0.6 mg (5 times less than you take), so I would get a lower dose preparation - comes in liquid form which is easier to adjust as well. If you want to try something different, chamomille tea would be a start, or consider cbt treatment.
I took two melatonin every night since Saturday and I feel like I can't stay awake too long during the day. Would that be the cause of this drug?
