    Negative side effects of melatonin

    I tried Melatonin while working a nightshift to get some sleep during the day. The stuff sure worked for me: Within the hour I would feel groggy and then I would pass out just fine and have a good nights sleep dreams and all.

    The problem was that I started to feel a bit more anxious than usual while using melatonin.

    Melatonin is a hormone that occurs naturally in the body. It's involved in the body's biological clock, which affects your sleep cycle and your body's production of other hormones. There are also claims that melatonin supplements slow the aging process, protect the body from toxins, boost the immune system, and prevent cancer; sounds good, hu?

    People taking melatonin supplements have reported side effects that include headache, daytime sleepiness, drowsiness, dizziness, stomach cramps, and irritability. I, however, felt that something was a little bit "off" while taking it. So I chose to discontinue using the stuff.

    Has anyone else noticed anything similar with it?

    i personally can't stand that sheet. it gives me wicked dreams and within 4 hours i am up and unable to fall back asleep. i've been working nights for years and what works for me is benadryl (tylenol pm) 5o mg or 2 tabs. if you really want to get to sleep a little cheech and chong with the benadrly does wonders!

    I love melatonin, within half an hour of taking it i am out like a light, That stuff practically knocks me unconcious, and i have the craziest dreams too. Personally I find the stuff works really good.

    I've never heard of anyone having any of those side affects. Melatonin is a very safe product and besides bad dreams (ussually from a relativley high dose) I think the chances of sides are extremley small.
