It has been two weeks now and the dirahea has not stopped. My stomach growls a lot and I get anxiety which is really disrupting my normal routine. Did anyone experience this kind of growling as there I would realise something is wrong. I know it can take up to six weeks to resolve but with just 1mg for 6 weeks it can have such a devastating effect? It is really disturbing and I am freaking out that something is wrong.

I began taking gummy melatonin, believe they were 5mg , around the end of March 2020.
I would take one usually two a night and felt it helped sleep deeper and return to sleep easily when I would usually wake up and stay up around 2-3 in the morning.
I purchased a new bottle of melatonin when that bottle ran out. Looking for the best deal for my money and unable to find the gummies, I purchased a pharmacy brand 10mg dissolving tablet on 4/22.
Wednesday April 23 while sitting in the lunch room at work my stomach let out a loud wailing sound I had never heard before. That was the beginning . Loose watery stool that night , Thursday same , Friday continued. I could always make to bathroom, no other symptoms but voluminous watery. Not to be too graphic but it sounded like I was peeing and it was all loose watery stool. By Saturday night I was up continuously, going going going Sunday morning I was vomiting, I had severe leg cramps.
I am a nurse I was sent for Covid testing due to the cramps.
Covid was negative . Looking back I was so sick I did not take the melatonin Saturday -Tuesday , Wednesday I had my first formed bowel movement in a week. I was so relieved and cleared to go back to work. Wanting a good sleep before working again I took melatonin Thursday , Friday diarrhea. I am going back to work today. I have been lethargic, diarrhea and frustrated. I had stool cultures and O&P done which were negative.
I finally thought hard and realized melatonin was new to me and I found this site. I have not taken the supplement since Friday night my stools are slowly getting formed.
I am so frustrated that none of this is on the bottle no hint of these being a possible issue and I have lost precious time working helping other during this pandemic.
I will never take melatonin again and I will warn others to monitor there dosing, not to use it regularly and personally I would not use it at all.
Thank you so much for this posting it helped .
Thanks for the link to the bulk melatonin, Tincup.Tincup wrote:I've been experimenting with bulk powdered melatonin. I've taken up to 80 mg and I know people taking over a gram without issue. Wonder if it is the other ingredients?
