In a double-blind cross-over study, melatonin (2 mg) or placebo, was administered daily for 4 weeks to 12 volunteers (10 men and 2 women) at 17.00 h during February and March. Self-rated fatigue (tiredness) was significantly increased in the evening during melatonin treatment. No other consistent effects on sleep ratings or mood parameters were observed and the dose was well tolerated.
