Melatonin with Accutane?

Recommended Posts

I was looking online and it's too late to call my doctor but I was wondering if you can take melatonin while using accutane. The pharmacist gave me a list of herbal products I can take and melatonin wasn't one of them. I have insomenia and I know it's bad but I can't sleep without some sleep aid and I prefer to take that. Any information would be helpful!

You can, but you may not need to.

I normally have to take melatonin to get to sleep at any kind of a reasonable hour (my body's idea of a perfect sleep schedule is 1 am to 9 am, but I have to get up at 5 am for work, so that doesn't go over very well), but when I started Accutane I no longer had a need. I was just so tired all the time that it was easy as hell for me to fall asleep at 9 pm.

But, if you still need a sleep aid, yes, perfectly safe.
