My 4 yo daughter has been given Metogenics to calm and help her sleep but I’ve found out it is full of fructose. Also if any mums have any tips on getting around the bad taste so she will take it,  I’d appreciate the advice. I want to know I’m doing the right thing but not sure

  • Who prescribed this ? When our GP prescribes something I’m not happy with I ask if there are different options. We use Melatonin for our youngest, I order it from iHerb

  • Hope all is going well! There are really interesting comments on this!


  • Goodness me, I’ve never heard of a child being given medication to sleep. All the fructose doesn’t sound good. But if the Dr prescribed it and it’s just a short term solution, it’s probably fine :)


  • As long as you feel happy in your decision you are doing the right thing.


  • Wondering on an update? How is she going?


  • isn’t she too young to be having this stuff


  • I would see if there’s any other alternative ways to help her rest.


  • I hope all is working out well, if your dr wants her on them then she sould take them


  • I would suggest going to Pharmacy and asking if there is anything natural for kids


  • How did you end up going?


  • try putting it in cordial. . . . . . . . . ..


  • Hope you found the advise your looking for


  • How did you end up going with disguising the taste?


  • A second opinion perhaps, and from a naturopath too.


  • I guess it also depends on the reasons behind prescribing this medication my son has sleep issues and is ADHD he has been prescribed melatonin to help him sleep melatonin is produced naturally in the body but some of us don’t produce enough of it I would go back to ur doctor and see what they suggust
