Melatonin – should you ever take it?

Melatonin – should you ever take it? Melatonin is much over-hyped for sleep problems. Its usefulness for insomnia is limited. However, it is clearly useful for disorders of the sleep-wake rhythm. It is useful in delayed sleep phase syndrome, shift work disorder, jet lag syndrome. For delayed sleep phase syndrome, along with behavioral treatment and…
