In brief: Melatonin

Since there is no established dose for melatonin, it is recommended to start low (0.
3 mg) & work up to 5 mg, taken usually 30 - 60 minutes before bedtime. Potential side effects are nausea/vomiting, headache, irritability. If morning drowsiness occurs, reduce dose or take earlier before bedtime. Choose reliable manufacturer since ingredient quality may vary (not regulated by govt).
