    For people under 55 who have chronic insomnia or pain conditions that cause insomnia or are affected by sleep, melatonin can work. My 11 year old uses it to reset her sleep patterns for a month or so and then she's good for several months. Then if her sleep gets off due to her pain or insomnia or whatever, she uses it again until her sleep pattern returns to normal. Several doctors in different specialties recommended it. Like any substance there can be side effects. This study doesn't seem to show proof of actual side effects, just suggestions of what might happen. If there was actual scientific proof with repeatable outcomes, then we can look at melatonin as a bad option. For many people it's the only option.
