My son his almost 4 months taking melatonin, continuesly , should i continue on or stop taking, please advise.
with the melatonin, take him off the 5mg and give the 3mg, it works better in smaller doses, when you think the time is right take him off for a night or two but ween him off of it and watch his sleep patterns. Don't have him on it for a long time tho. Your body makes it own melatonin, and when you supply it for a long time your body forget how to make it, and because he's young his body after he's off will make more of it after it learns to do it again.
I've been on it since I was six, because of my illnesses. I can't come off of it or I wouldn't sleep if I do
