Melatonin is a natural hormone and is not a drug as such. It has never actually been tested for safety in children but it is widely used for young children with sleeping problems. No adverse effects have been reported as far as I am aware.There does not appear to ba strong reason for you to give your little daughter Melatonin as she goes to sleep well,if rather early at 5pm [which may be the problem] Melatonin is usually advised for children who have great difficulty in falling asleep and have very disturbed sleeping patterns.
