16 hours ago I took a 2.5 mg melatonin tablet. Is that okay? Is it possible to OD on melatonin? Have I taken too much?
2.5mg of melatonin is a small dose. You should be ok, but try not to mix these 2 on a regular basis.
Melatonin produced by your body some a lot some not enough. I take 10-15mcg at night along with valerian root. Husband is a specialist with herbs and vitamins, so I can honestly say that you are very safe as long as your not allergic to the other that you took which really is just Benadryl ( yep)!! And for those who produce too much melatonin will go outside in the sun for vitamin d because their body doesn't know when to turn off the melatonin and the vitamin d (the sun) will turn it off and wake ppl up. That's why walking jogging or running in morning is refreshing because it wakes your body up.
Not dangerous at all, some people take 10 mg per night and they are fine
