Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Melatonin





Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

Intake of ethanol between 1900-1945 h inhibited the nocturnal melatonin secretion dose-dependently during the first half of the night, with no changes in urinary excretion of melatonin.
The Journal of clinical endocrinology and metabolism  •  1993  |  View Paper
Addition of melatonin significantly increased circadian values of phagocytosis, restored adherence, and prevented the numeric depletion of lymphocytes induced by alcohol.
Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences  •  2005  |  View Paper
The variation of melatonin correlated with the ethanol production rate, suggesting that melatonin may participate in physiological regulation of Saccharomyces cerevisiae during the fermentation stage.

Animal models suggest that intrauterine alcohol exposure may disrupt sleep wake patterns, cause sleep fragmentation, and specifically affect the suprachiasmatic nucleus, thus disrupting melatonin secretion.
