Hello, all!

              grey (grysmith at edmonton.alb.ca) argued today
mentioning (in "Simple test for ADD") "melatonin overdose".

              Some patients in an onco trial (MLT-modulated
IL-2 immunotherapy plus chemotherapy) received 20,000 to
25,000 times every day their body's melatonin content, during
eighteen months. And my boss ingested twelve grams in a couple
of weeks in order to assess toxicity, before inchoating the
trial. We had NO troubles except a little diminution of cen-
tral body temperature. We still have no idea of what could 
a melatonin "overdose" be and which its symptoms.
