Melatonin dose for children


Dear Stephen,
I really appreciate your Q & A column. I have a question about the melatonin dose for children. I have read that a melatonin dose should be kept to 1mg – 3mg so I bought a 1mg liquid. The dose is 4ml 20 minutes before bedtime. For  children ages 6 and 8, would I use the “Clark’s rule” of dividing their weight in pounds by 150 (average adult’s weight)?

 

Stephen’s response:
I would use 1-2 drops and see how it works for them.
Stephen
