I started taking melatonin for sleep problems and it has helped however I was in a doctor's office and read that you should not take it if you have RA. The article did not explain why.
Why should you not take melatonin if you have RA? What are the negatives?

knicky; YOU missed your chance you should have asked the doctor or nurse at the office and found something you can take. But the reason is Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic, inflammatory type of arthritis. It is also classified as an autoimmune disease (i.e., immune cells attack the body's own healthy tissues AND anyone with a autoimmune problem should not take Melatonin it can speed up the attack on your body. hope this is good enough for you. Call your doctor and see what you can take. good luck hope this helps
