Melatonin is a prescription synthetic medication used to treat insomnia and improving sleep in different conditions. Melatonin is a neurohormone that your body makes naturally. It is produced by the pineal glands in the brain at night. It prepares your body for sleep. Melatonin’s main job in the body is to regulate night and day cycles or sleep-wake cycles. It may also be used for jet lag, for adjusting sleep-wake cycles in people whose daily work schedule changes and for helping people establish a day and night cycle.
