Melatonin is a very safe drug. It just hasn't been studied much in children. One side effect it may have is hyperactivity. But a bit of history would be benifical. Age? Tried other meds like benadryl? Other medical history's?
I've personally never heard of any serious side effects of melatonin. Short term it can be beneficial in adults. But if you want to try it, start with the lowest dose. .5mg at dinner NOT at bedtime. See how your child reacts. Report back. Good luck.
