I was wondering if anyones children is taking melatonin and if they have noticed behavioral changes in the children, such as irritability or being naughty, not listening or laughing when being told off
My 8 year old has been taking Melatonin (about 5 mg/night) for the past few months now. He hasn't experienced any negative side effects like the above that we have noticed... He is DX with ADHD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and the Melatonin has helped his sleep pattern become more routine, getting tired around the same time every night and waking up around the same time in the morning.. instead of the times being all over the place.
