Melatonin Madness

Melatonin Madness

Dear autism,

Melatonin used to be our best friend.  In the weeks right after diagnosis, that 1 mg wonderpill used to make the screaming and spinning go away…after waiting the prescribed 20-30 minutes of course.  I looked forward to that part of the routine.  Nowadays, we’ve gotten up to 3mg and well, let’s just say melatonin had us up til 2am last night (correction THIS morning).  I don’t appreciate you turning our friend against us like this.  You have YET AGAIN ruined a beautiful friendship.  SIGH.  We’re going back to the drawing board…Our doc says that melatonin might be lonely and wants to introduce us to his new friend magnesium…we’re still gonna beat you by the way.  Just FYI.
