Why doesn't Sleepinox have Melatonin?
Dr. David Mahjoubi noticed many of his patients using Melatonin woke up with morning grogginess, felt "cranky" the next day, and even had possible "short-lived" depression. Furthermore, while Melatonin is naturally occurring in the body, it is not a plant-based substance. Just as taking substances naturally occurring to the body may not be safe, e.g. Testosterone, there are not enough studies proving the safety of exogenous Melatonin.

What if Anxiety or PTSD are causing my insomnia?

Can I take Sleepinox with alcohol?
We dont recommend taking sleepinox with alcohol, as the sedative effects of both can have a synergistic effect causing you to have respiratory compramise. One should note that alcohol will prevent the human brain from achieving adequate depths of sleep to feel well rested the next day. If you are having difficulty controlling your drinking of alcohol, please consult your primary care physician. Ketamine has also been know to significantly decrease craving for alcohol.
