    Melatonin ? Why in the world do you give this to a child. Not to be given to children is one of the first and foremost warnings for this. Did a doctor recommend it?

    I looked over the list of reasons to take it, and except for short time sleep disorders could find nothing that a 8year old child would need it for.

    So no, I would not give it along with any other medication, and I would not give it again unless your doctor believes it is needed.
