Melatonin Overview

Melatonin, also known as N-acetyl-5-methoxy tryptamine,[1] is a hormone that is produced by the pineal gland in animals and regulates sleep and wakefulness.[2] Melatonin is also produced in plants where it functions as a first line of defense against oxidative stress.[3] In animals, melatonin is involved in the entrainment (synchronization) of the circadian rhythms including sleep-wake timing, blood pressure regulation, seasonal reproduction, and many others.[4] Many of its biological effects...

Sleepasil Side Effects/is it addictive? dosage

Hi im a user of sleepasil for many months. im taking two capsules everyday.. sometimes even if im taking 2 capsules a day i still cant' sleep. pls help, does it have a side effect?? ## Sleepasil is just a dietary supplement that contains a variety of natural herbs that are believed to help with sleep and promote relaxation. As such, however, it has not been studied for side effects, as is done with actual prescription medications and it's not actually proven to help with insomnia. Have you consulted a doctor about your problem? Do you keep a set bed time and make sure not to eat a heavy meal or have anything alcoholic or caffeinated in the evening? ## i just got a sleepasil. unfortunately, no advice as to how many capsules should i take. i read some notes that its more effective...

sleepasil side effects

I've been taking sleepasil for quite a while now and have been experiencing several possible side effects that may contributed by the drug. My major concern is what is in the drug. Yes it is BFAD approved but i cannot find its make up. Thanks. ## Sleepasil is actually a supplement claimed to help with sleep issues. It contains: Melatonin, Chamomile, Wild JuJube Seed Extract, Valerian Root, Hops, Scullcap, Passion Flower, Calcium and Magnesium. That said, since this is a supplement, side effects are not known, they have not been studied. What exactly have you been experiencing? Have you spoken to your doctor? ## it has melatonin. i heard its bad for eczema, psoriasis. i have skin problems but not yet have done skin biophsis but i know its either psoriasis or eczema. is it safe for me...

Melatonin and Gabapentin

Can someone tell me what the relationship between Gabapentin and Melatonin is? I’m slowly tapering up to taking 300 mg of Gabapentin 3 xs a day and am weaning off Ibuprofen this week. My Pain Management Specialist wants me to lower my pain level to make life more dueable as well as minimizing any variables at the same time. Currently I’m taking 5 mg of Melatonin and have been taking this for 5 years in order to sleep more than 3 hrs at a time (been on Gabapentin for 3.5 months and had no differences with sleep schedule afterwards). Do I need to wean off Melatonin while slowly increasing Gabapentin? I know that the pain will decrease. ## Melatonin is a supplement that is used to restore a normal sleep cycle, so there are no known warnings about taking it with a prescription m...

Trazodone and Melatonin

I've been on trazodone for 2 weeks but quit taking it 24 hours ago. Is it safe to take melatonin now? ## According to the University of Maryland Medical Center (umm.edu / drug interaction tool) there are no interactions listed between Trazodone and melatonin. Also, our bodies naturally produce melatonin at night. So if there were to be an interaction, no one would be able to take their Trazodone at night or while napping in a dark room. I'm not trying to sound facetious, but in my honest opinion there really shouldn't be any problem with this combination, otherwise Trazodone would be rendered useless for all humans.

no imprint small white round pill

sleep pill (for sure) white, round no imprint on either side. about a cm in diameter ## If there is no imprint, it will be difficult to narrow down what this tablet contains. It can be ruled out as a U.S. prescription medication, but could be any one of a large number of over the counter items, even among those claimed to help with sleep. How do you know it is a sleep aid? ## Yes, as I said before, it is a sleeping pill. I forget the name. That is why I want to know. ## not a drug, its natural. melatonin ## Quick dissolve cherry flavored to be exact on the melatonin 10 mg. See other post ## I receive Dizy-10 Tablets in blister packs with red on the back side saying 10mg Diazepam. They are in sealed blister packs, no box, They took 4 weeks to arrive (at high cost).

round white thick pill no markings

white round pill, very think no numbers, letters, scoring. smooth on both sides, ## small, white smooth pill with an engraved line through middle of one side ## That is what I've found, Small white smoothe with one half scoring on one side only, Help !!! ## If there are no markings, we can rule it out as being a U.S. manufactured prescription tablet, because they are all required by law to have imprints to enable their identification in case of emergency. Thus, it is most likely that this is an over the counter product of some type. And, if you've ever purchased a few of them, you know there are quite a few possibilities, among both medications and supplements, that meet this description. Just to give a few examples, right now on my shelf, I have both a Vitamin D tablet and a Me...

White pill no imprint

I found two round white with a bunch of pinkish specks on them. There is no imprint and would like to know what they are. ## We can rule them out as being U.S. approved prescription tablets, since they are all required to have imprints to enable their identification. That means they are most likely over the counter products and that leaves it open to many different possibilities. What is your general location? Some products are regional, so that may help to narrow it down. Does anyone else recognize these? I'll keep looking and post back, when I have information for you. ## I take white round tablet with pink specs, no imprint, that's a 10 mg quick dissolve melatonin, cherry flavored, made by HEB. If it sets out it seems to get more noticeable brigher specks, can barely see the ...
