Beta Blockers Suppress Melatonin Production


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

In the new Rogers book I am reading, she said beta blockers suppress melatonin. I just visited PubMed and confirmed that it is true, at least for atenolol (but it reads as if others do the same).

Here is a link: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.f...l=pubmed_docsum

If you are on BBs and have sleep issues and don't want to, or cannot, take melatonin, then maybe all the good suggestions in "Lights Out" should be taken. These include turning down lights early and eating carbs only during lighter times of year, etc.
