If you'd have just skimmed the page that you commented on, you would have found the information that you were looking for. Please read my page on Melatonin Overdose.

By all means, however, if you are feeling bad, you should see someone when you've taken an entire bottle of something unintentionally. But I'm curious how you would have taken an entire bottle of something just to get some sleep. Melatonin comes in dosages of 1 mg or 2 mg most often, and it's pretty difficult to choke down 50-100 pills unintentionally. So, maybe, if you are actually suicidal, you should talk to someone. There are suicide hotlines, and you should probably call someone if this was an intentional overdose. You should talk to someone. Taking 50 pills is not normal, and hard to believe that it was unintentional or you meant just to try to get some sleep. Please get some help immediately from someone you can talk to.

In study's of Melatonin people where given 6 grams (6,000 milligrams) every night for a month. Perfectly fine.
