That’s my understanding too, @hmccarth5. Here’s what Mayo Clinic has to say
“Melatonin is generally safe for short-term use. Unlike with many sleep medications, with melatonin you are unlikely to become dependent, have a diminished response after repeated use (habituation), or experience a hangover effect.”
I’m happy the cooler weather is returning in my part of the country. I sleep so much better with cool air through the open window. What helps you sleep?
