@lorena1egas, according to this article by Mayo Clinic, melatonin is generally safe for short-term use. It's not a long term solution.
– Is melatonin a helpful sleep aid — and what should I know about melatonin side effects? https://www.mayoclinic.org/healthy-lifestyle/adult-health/expert-answers/melatonin-side-effects/faq-20057874

See this Mayo Clinic Minute with sleep expert Dr. Timothy Morganthaler.

This is a good topic to bring up next week when you're at Mayo for your polysomnography (sleep study). I look forward to hearing what you learn. Please report back.

Hi thanks for your answer. Todas is my first appointment with Sleep Medicine expert at Mayo. I will discuss my options. But the last time I came they told me that the protocol for rem sleep disorder is to use melatonin on the long term. People who experience VIVID DREAMS or HALLUCINATIONS while on melatonin usually last 2 months & that after 2 months these symptoms dissappear. I was wondering if theres somebody here that experienced this awful side effect of melatonin and if they find a way to take it in order to avoid the awful vivid dreams
