I can’t tell you the long-term effects of melatonin, but my son has been taking it for 12 years (currently using the Olly Sleep Gummies which have a couple other ingredients too, he’s 18). It’s the only way he gets sleep. The following also help him:

– weighted blanket
– nature sounds
– essential oils
– Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime EXTRA tea (has to be the extra)
