Friend, 5mg of Melatonin is not going to be life threatening to a 5 lbs Ginger; she may become a little drowsy otherwise she will be fine; no need to worry.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
