Melatonin: Treatment and rehabilitation
Last modified: Sunday, 31. May 2009 - 5:12 pm
Currently, there are no treatment or rehabilitation options for people who use melatonin. It is not known if long-term users may have difficulty with sleeping or other side effects when they quit taking melatonin supplements. Discontinuing the use of melatonin after short-term use, such as for adjusting to jet lag, has not proved to be difficult or to cause any side effects.
Some experts, however, are concerned that abruptly discontinuing the use of melatonin after taking very high doses may result in withdrawal. Whether or not this is truly the case, or how it is best to deal with any symptoms of withdrawal, is not known.
