Melatonin acts on the MT1 and MT2 receptors in the suprachiasmatic nucleus of the hypothalamus and is intimately involved with the circadian rhythm (Kostoglou-Athanassiou 2013). The production of melatonin is enhanced by darkness and blocked by light. Melatonin levels are 10– 30 times higher at night than during the day. The ability to produce melatonin can be affected if there is light exposure at night.

Echinacea is a human cytochrome P450 3A4 enzyme inhibitor; therefore, there is potential that medications metabolized through cytochrome P450 1A2 may interact with Echinacea. Patients allergic to daisies, ragweed, chrysanthemums, and marigolds should be cautioned, as they may also be allergic to Echinacea. Patients with autoimmune disorders may react adversely to Echinacea.
