Melatonin Improves Mood, Quality of Life in Fibromyalgia Patients, Study Suggests
Oral melatonin could improve fibromyalgia patients’ mood and quality of life, as well as decrease anxiety and cortisol levels.
The study, “Melatonin Improves Mood Status and Quality of Life and Decreases Cortisol Levels in Fibromyalgia,” was published in Biological Research For Nursing.
People with fibromyalgia tend to have mood disorders and mental conditions such as anxiety and depression, which can diminish their quality of life.
They also have elevated levels of cortisol — a strong indicator of stress — and reduced levels of molecules that suppress inflammation and regulate mood.
