How should Melatonin be used?

  • Follow the instructions on your medication label and take this medication as prescribed by your doctor.
  • This medication should be taken with or after food.
  • This medication should be taken shortly (1 – 2 hours) before going to bed.
  • The prolonged-release (PR) tablet must be swallowed whole with water or other liquids; do not crush, chew or cut into half.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

If you are directed by your doctor to take the medication regularly and forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember, before going to sleep, or wait until it is time to take your next dose, then go on as before. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose.
