MELATONIN IS HIGHLY EFFECTIVE – (07-11-05)By
Melatonin is effective for some sleep disorders
Well…I have to say that this article is probably right on for how I use melatonin in my office. Two interesting notes–this study found melatonin effective in children and also used dosages up to 10 mg, which is far in excess of the higher levels of recommendations at 3 mg. Also of notes was that the authors compared melatonin with Ambien and found it similarly effective–and, though not mentioned, a heck of alot cheaper (melatonin is very inexpensive).
Keep in mind as well that melatonin has some heavy research behind it for acting as a high powered antioxidant in the nervous system, which is an added benefit that I would bet Ambien can’t claim.
