Melatonin is considered a safe supplement. A large meta-analysis showed no evidence of adverse effects (any “side effects” were also reported in the placebo groups), however the researchers noted the lack of long term studies (Buscemi N, Vandermeer B, et al. The efficacy and safety of exogenous melatonin... A meta-analysis. J Gen Intern Med. 2005 Dec;20(12):1151-8.) Since melatonin is a neurohormone, it is advised to stop supplementing after a month for a period of a few weeks, so as not to desensitize receptors. Best taken at night to avoid daytime drowsiness. Talk to your doctor if you are concerned that your medication might interact with melatonin; for instance, melatonin can reduce blood clotting, which is normally considered a good thing, unless a patient is already on blood-thinning drugs that can have a compounding effect.
