Dosage

Melatonin Supplement Dosage:

There are now several melatonin supplement products that are manufactured to help those who are having sleep disorders which includes insomnia and autisms. Melatonin is also said to fight anti-aging and help in weight loss.

Below is the recommended dosage for melatonin supplement products:

Adults


Insomnia: Take 1mg-3mg in tablet (or 1mg in liquid form) an hour before going to bed. If this dosage doesn’t feel you sleepy, you might want to try 2 tablets the next night.

Just bear in mind that taking an additional dosage the first time might knock you out and may lead to oversleeping or the likelihood of heightened side effects. The proper dosage should give you a good sleep without any headaches or drowsiness. Ask your doctor if he or she has any recommendations about dosage amounts and which strength may work best for you.

Jetlag: 0.5mg – 5mg in tablet an hour before going to travel.
