Melatonin has been studied in various populations including children, adults, and the elderly. It has also been studied among individuals with mood disorders, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s dementia, and in children with neurodevelopmental problems. Melatonin has few side effects and is secreted in breast milk. It is not addictive and there is no rebound insomnia associated with it, so it is a good alternative for those suffering from insomnia.
