Customer Question
If you take 58...

If you take 58 5 mg melatonin pills, is that enough to kill you? What I know is how long does it take to die from an overdose of melatonin pills?

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

No, I'm not allergic to anything. I take supplements.

Hi,

Welcome to JA and thanks for this question. Actually so far there has not been documented evidence of melatonin causing death despite of the amount of the drug used. Yes, there have been documented episodes of it causing serious side effects such as seizures, excessive sedation, irregular heart beats and low blood pressure and those side effects have been documented to occur when doses between 1000 - 5000 mg have been used. Using 58 5 mg pills comes to a total dose of 290 mg which is well under the doses which have been found to cause serious side effects. It is unlikely that a person will die because of using this dose. The only way this dose would cause serious side effects would be if the person already had underlying problems such as breathing difficulties due to COPD or asthma or an underlying heart condition, in that situation this dose may be dangerous. But otherwise, a dose of 58 pills is unlikely to cause death. It will definitely cause a person fall unconscious and remain unconscious for 12-24 hours but death is unlikely.

Do you have any other questions? we can discuss this further if you need more clarifications.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
