Is Melatonin Safe To Take On A Regular Basis For Sleep
Is it safe to take 10 mg melatonin and 50 mg diphenhydramine HCl an hour before bed almost every night? I have trouble getting to sleep most nights.
Probably safe: Melatonin is secreted by the pineal gland and acts to regulate the body's sleep/wake cycle. Its use as a supplement has been proposed for multiple reasons; improved sleep, chronic fatique and autism are just a few. No serious toxic effects are reported, but caution is advised when used with other sedative meds or when anticoagulents or dibetic meds are involved.

How much melatonin is safe to take? My prescription sleep pill is too strong but melatonin is too weak. I usually take 6mg. 170lb, 16, female.
I have difficulty sleeping. I get sleep at 4am every night and I'm thinking of taking melatonin. Is it safe and how much should one take? Thank you!
1-2 mg: The correct dose of melatonin is 1-2 mg, taken around 9 pm - which is when natural melatonin starts to rise. Start with the lowest dose. For some people the 3 mg dose can actually increase insomnia. Good sleep hygiene helps sleep - dark cool bedroom, no computers or tv after 9pm or so, no late exercise, for instance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
