melatonin use
      #81687 - 01/21/04 06:15 PM

This is a great site! I was wondering if taking melatonin (for sleep) is OK for poz individuals? I ordered a bottle but when it arrived the label said do not use if you have auto-immune disease! Anybody know about this?? Thanx and keep up the great site!

I've been using melatonin for 2+ years now and have absolutely no ill effects. My regimen is Combivir & Sustiva, plus a daily multi-vit.

Well, since HIV isn't an autoimmune disease, I don't see the problem. Autoimmune diseases are things like Lupus, Rheu.Arthritis, Chrohn's...etc
