Melatonin Dosage for Children
Children generally need less melatonin than adults. Recommended dosage information is usually based on a 120-150 pound adult.
The research on melatonin for children is inconclusive. Before giving melatonin to a child, first talk to the child’s pediatrician.
To adjust the dosage according to the child's weight: divide the child's weight by 120-150 to get the percentage of the adult dose that should be administered to the child.
Liquid melatonin can be diluted in water, juice or foods without losing potency.
