Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 years ago):
I travelled east through 9 time zones and decided to take melatonin to help adjust to the jet lag. I came down with a severe bladder infection that very night, awoke at 2:45 in the morning, but I am not entirely sure the cause of it. I was peeing blood. I went to the hospital in the morning and was diagnosed and put on Amoxicilin and two pain-killers. I am afraid the melatonin might have contributed to the bladder infection but I was wondering if I should try and continue taking the melatonin because I am still having a hard time adjusting to the time difference. We got back on a Sunday and it is now a Wednesday.
