    I used to take melatonin but my doc & I were discussing my use of Echinacea for a bad cold I had and she brought up a website for John's Hopkins by a very well respected doctor in the fibro field. It listed things to stay away from for people with fibro and melatonin was on the list along with Echinacea. Google Echinacea & John's Hopkins & you can read the article. I stopped taking melatonin that day. I want to try essential oils as I've read they are very helpful. Anyone use them?
