Can Melatonin Ease Fibromyalgia Pain?


Now if you were to go by me I would have to say that Melatonin is quite useless. It makes me hyper and there is no way I can sleep with it and I am sure it ups my depressive symptoms. I have found an article that claims it helps sleep and pain depending on the dosage. See what you think.

I know people who benefit from it, but for me it is a definite NO.

    I’d be of the “melatonin works for me” ilk. The longer I take it, the longer it takes to kick in for sleep, and I have to higher the dose. Still, it does, after two or three hours, ease me to sleep. It works on my spawn as well (and I only gave it to her after the pediatrician suggested it). Of course, we don’t have fibro or diabetes. I think it more boils down to, we are all so very different, we need different options. My old shrink only believed Zoloft should be given for depression and that stuff made me suicidal. I am thankful we have options, even if some of us must go through some bad side effects before finding out if it works for us or not.

      My daughter and young grandson use Melatonin. It works great for him. He is 9 now. Me it makes me hyper and I have enough trouble sleeping and not suffering from hyperness.We are definitely all different. The drs like to think one medicine fits us all. The same with treatments for other things. He was very hyper, but the melatonin lulls him to sleep fairly fast.

        Mine has built up tolerance so I need to skip nights on giving her melatonin, that way it will work when I do give it to her.
        Truth be told, I hate doing it, HATE that she begs me to medicate her after an hour of not nodding off…. I would not wish my sleep issues on anyone, let alone one that I love.

          She tries not to give it to him everynight. Of course then he is up half the night and can’t settle down. She has not trouble with sleep. She was my one baby who actually slept and only woke to eat.
