Started May 26, 2023
Abstract or project description
Melatonin is a commonly used substance in humans. It is important to understand their effects and safety, so that they can be effectively prescribed to patients with medical issues, such as sleep problems. This project will overview melatonin with respect to the role and process of melatonin in improving sleep and also identify possible adverse effects (AE) of melatonin. PubMed and google scholar were used for literature search to look at 13 articles. The literature search includes human melatonin sleep experiments and the short-term adverse effects of melatonin. The analysis of melatonin use included the effects on different populations, adults and elderly. This review examines the effectiveness of melatonin and its possible risks for people with sleep quality needs.
