Melatonins effect on nocturnal erections
« on: November 29, 2020, 08:15:58 pm »
I have noted over the last few weeks of intermittent use of Melatonin seems to have a strong effect on nighttime erections.
Most notably for me the dosage seem best at 1mg taken before bed with effects starting to occur at around 1.5 hours but lasting up to 4 or more hours. Possibly should take it earlier to see if effects are at a more useful time.
Currently my T levels are mid range but erections and especially night time erections are few and far between, melatonin in my case seems to be having a positive effect in addressing this issue, one that many on TRT experience.

Interesting. Evidently there's not a lot in the medical literature on this. It seems melatonin along with tadalafil helped rats with spinal cord injuries regain sexual function: https://www.healthline.com/health/erectile-dysfunction/melatonin-as-treatment
I am not a medical doctor; any suggestions are meant to be discussed with your doctor.

My surface skim of it (Wiki articles) seem to indicate its like fabled snake oil as a cure all for any thing that ails you but none properly researched, and no mention of it in ED studies.
I assume the lack of studies is probably due to it not being patented so no big money to be made by pharmaceutical companies and plenty of indication that its as least as effective as many with few to no side effects.
I will delve a little deeper in the research as it does seem key in various neurotransmitter synthesis processes.
The preparation I have been taking has B6 @ 10mg added in but I can discount that as the active agent as I usually take a B complex pill with B6 @ 82mg and that has none of this effect.

I noticed exactly the same reaction, first night i ever took melatonin  some years ago.  Melatonin lowers estradiol, maybe it's related to that?

Possibly but I dont think that estradiol lowers that quickly to have such a dramatic effect (about an hour and a half).
I suspect its about helping in the production of something else.
