Will this medication cause weight gain? I have A-Fib heart condition, will this medication increase my heart condition? I am 85yrs old & also on blood pressure meds, along with a nerve pill for my leg pain & Equilis for blood thinner & Topal for my heart. Also Zopidem for sleep.
Thanks for your reply,
Thanks for writing in with your question! I have not found any research suggesting melatonin causes weight gain. In terms of your specific health conditions and medications that you take, it would be important to consult with the prescribing physician to determine whether this supplement is appropriate for you. We can summarize the research that is out there, but we can’t provide specific medical guidance since we’re not doctors!
Is Melatonin hard on the kidneys?? I have one bad kidney do to years of using Celebrex. Now I use as many herbal medications as I possibly can. Yes I see a doctor regularly. I’m just very sensitive to side effects with all these drugs out these days. My doctor has tried me on many…. I wont do it anymore. Cymbalta Lyrica Crestor etc… I have done my research and have found herbal supplements for all of them. And Im doing as well as possible. I was truly shocked to find out that omega-3’s do the same job as a statin only MUCH SAFER. I am proof of the. LDL is down. At 59 with Rheumatoid Arthritis Osteoarthritis Fibromyalgia (bad muscle cramps. Magnesium helps but I need more help with this if you know anything PLEASE) Oh I just thought about it. Will vitamin B compound have interactions with melatonin?
I take :: Omega-3s
Vitamin B compound
Faithfully every day. And its helping so much. I do research them but I’m a little conflicted about Melatonin. I NEED to take it so I hope its fine for my kidneys.
Thank You so much for your time. Ive never asked such a question before. But your information was awesome so I thought I would.
Thanks again. Wendy
