  • A singular high potency sublingual tablet is optimal for those who need higher doses of melatonin (10-20 mg)
  • Derived from non-animal sources

Drug Interactions
Melatonin can stimulate immune function and may reduce the efficacy of immunosuppressive drugs. Theoretically, concomitant use of melatonin with sedative/hypnotic or central nervous system depressants may be additive. However, benzodiazepines may also reduce endogenous melatonin levels. Melatonin can reduce the efficacy of blood pressure medication nifedipine GITS (Procardia XL). Case reports suggests melatonin may potentiate anticoagulant and antiplatelet medications, however, the mechanism and clinical significance are unknown. Additionally, melatonin may impair glucose utilization and increase insulin resistance in diabetic patients. However, the clinical significance of this effect on diabetics is unknown. Contraceptive drugs can increase endogenous melatonin levels. Theoretically, this may increase the effects and adverse effects of oral melatonin use. Fluvoxamine significantly inhibits the elimination of melatonin, which some researchers believe could be helpful in the treatment of refractive insomnia. However, this interaction may also cause excessive unwanted drowsiness and other adverse effects.
