We've just started dd on melatonin for sleep issues as per her paediatricians advice and I think it's making her more emotional..
She told me tonight that she feels a bit sad, like she wants to live on another planet or something :-( it made me so sad. She was full on crying with tears running down her face.. I cuddled her and told her we didn't want her to live somewhere else because we love her too much and she relaxed and went to sleep.
She was more emotional during the day today as well, and cried at the drop of a hat, which can sometimes be normal for her if shes tired, but she slept all night last night.
I guess I'm just looking for others who have used melatonin and if it had any
side effects on other children.
She's only been taking it for 2 nights so am thinking it could be that the dose is too high and I might need to drop it if it's already causing her to be so sad..
