i may have brought this up before, but im gonna ask again.

i have a really really hard time falling/ falling and staying asleep. i have taken melatonin off and on for a couple of years. just this year i have developed intense foot burning/itching when i take it. i have scoured the net trying to find any info about it. all i can find is that itching can be a side effect and that most side effects go away.

what i am wondering is why this side effect started after a couple of years and what it means.

it could just be how the melotonin affects you; your system may be trying to reject it, usually this happens when you first take something, but not always.

it could be something else in it. did you try switching to a different brand?

You could also be taking perscriptions now that you were not before, that are conflicting. Talk to your pharmacist. Just because it is a natural product it does not mean it is safe.
