Ongoing high dosage of melatonin

by ronnie
(beckley, wv)

let me first off tell you what led me to using 20 mg four times a day. I have been having an sweating and overheating problem for years. No matter what meds I'm on. I have sesitivity to high temperatures like anything over 75 degrees fereinheit. The melatonin lowers my core body temperature and allows me to like somewhat of a normal life. So my question is what are the long term side effects of such a high dosage ?

Same overheating/sweating issue
by: Linda

Wow,I happened upon your question and was intrigued to hear of someone else with this problem, I'm 52, I perspire, profusely anytime I am even lightly active and when temperature reaches 70° or above.

I have a normal oral temp but tympanic and transdermal temp. always registers 100°-101°. Except when I take Tylenol around the clock. Which I do to avoid the stares of strangers, and to be able to use make up and style my hair again. Perhaps I can start using melatonin, as I'm concerned with the effects Tylenol might have long-term on my liver.

Please respond to my email with comments. I'd love to compare notes.
