So, I'm about 4.5 weeks pregnant and I've been taking 3mgs of Melatonin every night to help me sleep. My psychiatrist who recommended it said it was fine to take while pregnant, and so did the nurse that I left a message with at my OBs office a few days ago. BUT, everywhere I look online, and all the anecdotal things I read about it say not to take it while pregnant or breastfeeding. So, I'm torn. Do I listen to my pdoc and OB? Do I call my general family practitioner for a 3rd opinion? Do I listen to all the other mamas on online forums who say not to take it? Is there anybody here who has taken it?
PS I can't take benadryl because it gives me shakes/tremors.
