I take 1mg of melatonin most nights. I do it to help me fall asleep (it really works.) I doubt this little helps my gut, but if it does, great!
UC diagnosed Dec. 2006
Azathioprine 200mg/day
Prednisone 0 ! (After nearly 1 year)
Multivitamin, B complex vit., fish oil, calcium, fiber supplement, probiotic, adrenal support

1mg of melatonin will not help your UC. It has to be taken in large doses (at least 10mg) before going to bed and you have to use the 'slow release' ones.
