melatonin effects caused shedding fastt

Post by babyeatingdingo »

Hey tom, i found an old bottle of melatonin that i purchased about a year ago because i was having some problems getting to sleep. I counted the pills inside and im missing 7 so i took it for about a week. I just last night took 1 pill to help me sleep, and within 30 minutes about 100 hairs ejected out of my scalp and my scalp itched like never before. Could this shedding be a positive sign, that the melatonin is ejecting terminal hairs, or is it that it is causing hair loss. I don't know if i'm allergic to melatonin or if the particular brand i bought is bad. Here is a link to see exactly which brand and mg i am taking. As well as having 3mg of melatonin, it contains 10 mg of vitamin b6 and 63mg of calcium. ... CEQQ8wIwBQ#

Did you ever get the answer you need about the melatonin? I have issues with sleep and take melatonin as well. I'm also going through a bout of TE and I'll rid of anything that would cause my TE to worsen, that includes melatonin!
