My son who is seven has been on Melatonin for about 2 months. Since being on Melatonin he has gained weight and he has major breathing difficulty, especially at night when he lies down. We have been to ER thinking is was his Asthma and it all seemed fined, we have had a ENT take an xray in case his adenoids where swollen, and they too where fine. I have been so concerned about his condition and was willing to go to any specialist to find out what is going on. I have read on the side effects of Melatonin and a couple are shortness of breath, pain in chest (which he is definitely getting) and headaches. I have had him off it for three nights and I just hope he gets better soon. Has anyone got any stories that relate??
