FINE-TUNING YOUR MELATONIN PROTOCOL

A small percentage of women need to adjust their Melatonin protocol. Here’s what to do if you are one of them:

  • Every woman is different – if you are generally sensitive to supplements, you may want to start with half a tablet at bedtime and increase to one tablet as your body adjusts.
  • If you do not experience improved sleep within a week, increase your dosage to two tablets before bed. If  symptoms improve, remain at two tablets per day for two weeks then resume the recommended dose of one tablet at bedtime.

 

Consult your healthcare provider prior to use if:

  • You are taking any medication or have any medical conditions.
  • You are pregnant, nursing or trying to conceive.
  • You have a seizure disorder.
  • You have cardiovascular issues, or a history of them.
  • You have an autoimmune or depressive disorder.
  • You are taking estrogen or other hormone replacement therapy.

 

Like many food and supplements, melatonin is known to affect the P450 pathway of the liver. As a result, certain prescription medications may be affected. Please consult your healthcare practitioner if taking any prescription medications.

Do NOT use if you have a known allergy or hypersensitivity to melatonin or any other ingredient in this supplement.

Warning: Not to be taken by individuals under the age of 18. If you are pregnant, nursing, taking any prescription medications (especially hormone replacement therapy), or have an autoimmune or depressive disorder consult your healthcare practitioner prior to use. Long-term use of melatonin has not been studied. Use of this product could cause hypothermia. Do not use before or while operating a motor vehicle or heavy machinery.
