Certain medications should not be used at meals or at certain foods because drug interactions can occur. Consuming alcohol or tobacco with certain drugs may also cause interactions to occur. Discuss your drug use with food, alcohol, or tobacco with your health care provider.

What health conditions can interact with melatonin?

Any other health conditions you have may affect the use of this drug. Always let your doctor know if you have other health problems, especially:

  • diabetes
  • depression
  • bleeding or having a blood clotting disorder such as haemophilia
  • have low blood pressure or high blood pressure
  • have epilepsy or other neurological disorders

In case of an emergency or overdose, contact your local emergency service provider or immediately to the nearest hospital emergency unit. Since melatonin is only used when needed, you probably will not need a scheduled dose. If you get a scheduled dose and forget about a dose of this drug, drink as soon as possible. But when it comes to the next dose, skip the missed dose and return to the usual dose schedule. Do not double dose melatonin for toddlers
