Can I have my melatonin lozenges


Recommended Posts

I currently, by doctors request, take melatonin. I am not a pill tolerate individual and use Source Naturals Melatonin Complex Orange Lozenges. We are on a very tight budget, and the reason I am doing Whole 30 is because it closely matches my doctors requirements for a doctor ordered exclusion diet. The "Other ingredients: sorbitol, mannitol, stearic acid, modified cellulose gum, natural orange flavor, magnesium stearate, and silica." Amazon Product Link

Please keep in mind when answering that I do not currently have monetary means to purchase another supplement and that I don't actually know if this one lozenge nightly will majorly affect the benefits of cutting all sweeteners. As of now this is the only product I have that I'm not 100% sure I will be able to cut out of my diet.

Reasons for exclusion diet: Chronic Migraine and sleep disturbances including falling asleep, staying asleep, and inability to wake up.

Sorbitol and mannitol are sweeteners and not compliant, but doctors orders trump Whole30 rules.

It might be helpful to work with your doctor on dosage/usage as you get further into the Whole30 and your sleep improves naturally, with your body regulating it better.  I assume since you're on medication for sleep issues, you've already cut out all caffeine. If not, I highly recommend weaning yourself. Even small amounts can be incredibly disruptive of sleep to those who are sensitive.
