Melatonin is a natural hormone found in our body. The Melatonin pill works the same as this natural hormone as per studies. It helps regulate sleep-wake cycles. It also helps fall asleep and stay asleep. It worked for my patients. It is usually safe. I have prescribed for short term only. No side effects so far. If the sleep is improved, patients overall status improved too. Do not recommend to take regular use. Advise frequent consultation and short term use only.
