I have a 4yr old son who has PDD and one of his therapist suggested using melatonin to help him sleep at night since it was sometimes close to midnight before he would pass out! He has been on it for about 4-5 months and it works very well! I have even tried it myself just to feel the affects and you fall asleep naturally and wake up refreshed. My question is if any other mothers have tried this supplement to help their little balls of energy get a good nights sleep? If so, is it only a short term fix or a long term life style? I have been thinking about weening him off of it or at least decreasing the dose which is now at about 3-5mg's per night..sometimes i break on the weekend, but he is currently on no other medications but this sleep aid supplement. Any input or advice?
