How long can you take melatonin? I ask because I already take Defender for almost a year against my symptoms of menopause. The hot flashes and headaches have become much better and I sleep well. So I would actually prefer not to discontinue taking it.
Thank you!

Dear iina,
Melatonin is considered in Italy as a dietary supplement. People supplement their diet with something, because they lack a certain element. Growing older the pineal gland produces less melatonin. So you can supplement with it to have the effect of a "young" melatonin level: good sleep and resynchronisation of biorhythms.
Melatonin is not addictive and you can discontinue at any time. But then maybe your problems of menopause occur again. Generally, there are no medical restrictions for the duration of taking it.
Best regards,
