Thank you for all the information,40 tabs of 5 mg makes 200 mg.You need not to worry.Melatonin is well tolerated.Research has showed that such doses would not cause lethal effect.There can be some stomach discomfort, excessive drowsiness.I hope this information helps.If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.Regards.
