How Much Melatonin?

How Much Melatonin?

My 21 year old daughter has regular nocturnal seizures. I have read that taking melatonin can help. I am not sure what mg dose to start with. She is very slight and weighs about 8 stone. Any advice would be really appreciated.

Many thanks,

Jane

Melatonin can csuse nightmares. You will want to check with your dr to make sure it won't interact with your meds

Sounds like you need to make an appointment with a neurologist to be properly medicated

Id maybe see if she does ok w/ it by begining w/ 5mg. She can probably stay at 10-15. My older son cant take. My younger son needs it to counteract his meds. Everyone is different.
