Medicine For Melatonin Allergy
Can I give my 4 year old melatonin and allergy medicine ( zyrtec (cetirizine) ) in the same day? If yes what would be the proper dose of melatonin?
Yes, but why??: There are no bad interactions between zyrtec (cetirizine) and melatonin. They are safe to use together. The bigger question is why daily melatonin. I imagine it has to do with poor sleep initiation patterns, but without knowing more, i would talk to his pediatrician about its use. A usual safe dose for a 4 y/o is 3 or 5 mg at bedtime, but as important is bedtime routine, decreased stimulation, etc. ...Read more

Is a 5mg tablet of melatonin safe to give an 11yr old child on a consistent basis? She has allergies, asthma, and takes Singular & an OTC allergy med.
No: We don't really know what melatonin does on a growing child. However it seems that you are trying to treat the symptoms and not the cause. The history suggests that nasal congestion and/or asthma may be the cause for his sleep problem and it is time for you to consider seeing an allergist since not getting enough sleep is just a small part of his problem. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I used to take 2 benadryls and melatonin to sleep, i skip that now and take 1 benadryl, how come its easier to sleep if i take less. i have allergies. i thought it would be the opposite, id sleep better before.
Sleep quality: Ideally, you would not depend on ANYTHING at all for sleep... those meds may temporarily seem to help, but in actual fact, they 'mess' with the sleep cycle. So I personally try never to take them... This may explain why you're actually doing better on less medication. The body knows what it needs to do - and better not to interfere artificially if you can help it. There's lots more on this topic ...Read more

Any : Any patient who has insomnia must pay attention to their sleep hygiene. You must avoid alcohol and sedatives after 6 pm, leave bed for sex and sleep only and no tv in bed. If you can't fall asleep in bed don't stay in bed just find something else to do and come back to bed when u are a little sleepy. This will train your brain that bed is not for worrying/watching tv etc and will improve sleep. If all this does not work then you can consider other alternatives. Since melatonin is a natural supplement thus should be the first step. Sleep aids have high risk of dependance and should be tried on as needed basis only. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

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?
Probably not: Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally found in your brain which we believe helps us regulate our sleep cycle. It is not known what happens if a person takes it in a supplement form for long periods of time (even just weeks or months) so most doctors like myself do not recommend it. Using cocaine, with melatonin or not, is a really bad idea. Plus, last i heard, it's illegal. ...Read more
