  • Question: I have a question about the use of melatonin. Ben A. Williams's "Role of Supplements" paper discusses cancer patients in Italy using 20 mg. of melatonin a day. How does one take that much melatonin? The pills that are sold as sleep aids are 300 micrograms. And aren't there likely to be rather noticeable side effects (depression, extreme grogginess)?

    Many health food stores sell 3 mg. pills/caps. The 'right' dose has not been established by clinical trials.
