What is Meloset 3?
Meloset containing the active ingredient melatonin is a synthetic version of a hormone that is produced in the brain. It works by adjusting and regulating the body�s internal clock and sleep-wake cycles. It is mainly used to treat jet lag, delayed sleep phase syndrome (DSPS) as well as insomnia associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), high blood pressure medications and children with developmental disorders. Some people may also use the medication for Alzheimer�s disease, menopause, birth control and other conditions.

Meloset is usually taken orally once per day 1 to 2 hours prior to bedtime or as directed by a doctor. The medication should be taken with a snack or just after some food along with a drink of water.
