In Reply to: How much Melatonin to give? posted by Don on December 21, 2000 at 11:32:23:
: I have read about giving autistic children small amounts of Melatonin before bedtime to help them sleep. How much is recommended for a 5 year old autistic boy, about 42 pounds.
: I'd like to here from some people who have tried it and see what kind of results they saw.
Hi, the Doctor started my son on 1/2mg.and then we moved him to 1mg. He was 5 years old and it worked like a charm. So, why not try 1/2mg and see what you get. He's been on 1mg for aprox.3yrs. Hope this helps
