Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Is melatonin effective for sleep disorders?

Bottom Line:
The quality of melatonin research is generally poor and at high risk of bias. If the results are believable^ melatonin may help people fall asleep faster (-10 minutes) and spend more time asleep (-15 minutes); both of these amounts may be of limited clinical value.
