Hmm I've been experiencing occasional very red cheeks which feel warm. I wonder if this is similar to what you're describing. I'm on adderall though and the red face seems to come when I take a 5-htp (i'll have to experiment a few times to make a definite link between the two)

Never hurts to tell the doc about natural supplements you are on. It has been my experience that they mostly usually don't know anything about them. I wonder if a pharmacist would be better to talk to about it. Then again I can't see having much more dialogue with my pharmacist than "hi I need to get this filled" and "ok it will be about 10 minutes".

BTW can you point me towards the info you found about melatonin not being natural? I've always understood it to be a naturally occuring chemical or something or another that your body makes. I would be very interested in reading up on it.
