disease/ UK vets question

Actually melatonin is illegal in some countries. Any
Canadian that I know who uses it, brings it up from the U.S.

adrenal disease/ UK vets question

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.
