Habituation and melatonin..........


New Member
Hi Dr.

I just had two really quick questions.

1.) What is the most one should/can take a particular drug/pill during the week without allowing ones body to become habituated to it and thus making the drug/pill ineffective? 2, 3 times a week no more?

2.) How long should one take melatonin supplements for? As I have heard if taken for too long the body or brain may decrease its natural melatonin production. Should a break period be taken if one has been using melatonin for a while before resuming use again?

I hope my questions are understandable, and thank you for any and all help! -
