I take one fluoroxetine every other day, 2.5mg of bendroflumethiazide

Customer Question

I take one fluoroxetine every other day, 2.5mg of bendroflumethiazide and 10mg atorvastatin daily. I am 76 years old. I have difficulty sleeping and would like to try melatonin as a natural product to help my sleep. Would there be any drug interactions with what I take which mean that I should not take melatonin. If it is ok could you recommend a brand, please.

Dr. David :

most likely it is fine for you to take melatonin.

Dr. David :

melatonin has not been well studied with other conventional drugs.

Dr. David :

you should let your doctor know you are taking melatonin for sleep.

Dr. David :

there is no one better brand of melatonin.

Dr. David :

you should see a sleep doctor and get a sleep study if you continue to have sleep problems.

Dr. David :

I would use between 1-3mg of melatonin per night to see if that helps you sleep.

Dr. David :

let me know if you have other questions.

Dr. David :

hello?
