Over-the-counter melatonin supplements have surged in popularity in the United States. 

As medical professionals, it’s crucial to understand both the potential benefits and considerations of melatonin supplementation, ensuring informed discussions with patients exploring this option.

Melatonin supplements, often recommended for short-term use, can help realign the body’s internal clock, aiding those with jet lag, shift work sleep disorder, or irregular sleep patterns. They are also explored as an option for children with sleep issues, though with careful consideration and under medical supervision.

While generally considered safe for short-term use in adults, discussing the appropriate dosage, timing, and potential side effects with patients is essential. It’s also crucial to review any interactions with existing medications or conditions.

As healthcare providers, guiding patients through evidence-based discussions on the use of melatonin, tailored to their specific health profile, ensures both safety and efficacy in improving sleep quality.
