Melatonin in the uk

13 Jan

If your reading this and your from the USA I’m guessing Melatonin is something you may of heard about before. Melatonin is freely avaliable in health food stores across the US.
If like myself you are from the UK Melatonin maybe unknown to you. Reason being is Melatonin is infact a unlicensed medication here in the UK and is only prescribed on a special ‘named patient basis’
Melatonin is a natural substance produced in the pineal gland located
In the brain. Known as the hormone of
darkness Melatonin is effective in
People with visual impairment in
whom Melatonin prodution is disturbed.
Melatonin also helps children with
Autistic spectrum disorder like my son.
We have been advised to give my son
3mg 20min before bed. We started the treatment last night but my son still slept rather badly.
Can anybody please tell me more about the use of Melatonin and if it helped there children or not?
