People who experience difficulty sleeping, migraine or cluster headaches, or fibromyalgia may benefit from melatonin supplements. Melatonin is a type of hormone that is produced naturally in the human body. Most supplements on the market today are synthetic versions of this hormone. Although there are several claimed uses of melatonin supplements, more research is needed to determine how to safely and effectively use these products. Just because melatonin is a "natural" substance, this does not mean it is safe for everyone. You may not be able to safely use melatonin if you have certain health conditions or are taking certain medications.
