Subject: Re: Melatonin/ Lupron for adrenal disease/ UK vets question

Melatonin can be used to treat the symptoms of adrenal disease.
Typically, 1mg given 8-9 hours after sunrise. It's not likely it
does anything to treat the actual disease, it only would help to
supress the symptoms. I believe you can get melatonin in just about
any health food store. I'm sure they have those even in Germany! I
couldn't say whether or not Lupron is available across the pond, but
it seems likely it is.
