Can you get rebounds from Melatonin

I was wondering I have read some where that some people have had rebounds from melatonin. Until a week ago I was taking T3 for attacks (dr woudn't give me anything else Angry then got o2 life saver well the last time I took a T3 I was up all night with rebounds.Three nights ago I started taking 6 mg of melatonin first night slept great no CH. Second night 1 attack so last night I took 9 mg of melotonin after 5 attacks and a empty o2 tank it's 6 in the morning on my one sleep in day I'm up but I am sure the attacks were rebounds. As I'm sure you all know the rebounds seem to have a different feel to them. I'm thinking maybe have to let my body empty out some more before I start taking Melatonin. Would love info from all of you seeings how you seem to know more than my &*%$ dr( would love to show him what to do with the T3)

Have never seen any medical literature suggesting rebound.  
 
Since it isn't an abortive, take it regularly (daily) for its preventive effect. (Most trials I've seen reported were usig 9-10mg/day.)

I don't know about rebounds but it does seem to have some preventative effects for me.  This cycle I'm only taking 9mg melatonin and O2.  After about a couple of weeks on the melatonin the CHs had noticeably quieted down.  I still wasn't sleeping through the night but it was easy to kill them off with the O2.  Then, like a dummy, I decided to see if the CHs were disappearing and started to taper off, 6 mg one night, 3 mg the next.  Wham, I got hit with a K9 and had to take Imitrex for the first time in a month.  I'm back at 9 mg and feeling much better.

Tylenol 3   (Tylenol w/ Codeine).   Not so effective for CH.

Very few here have had good luck with narcotic pain meds.   Most cause rebound ha's.
 
I have taken Melatonin for 9 months.   I have at times increased the dosage, and I have been able to successfully decrease the dosage.   However, I have been careful to kinda stay at a set dosage for at least a week before adjusting.   Sometimes, the CH breaks thru, but for the most part, it is a great med.
 
The last month or so, the Melatonin seemed to stop working....I started entering the REM phase and was dreaming.   By the time I could get awake, I was at a Kip 8.   Nevertheless, overall the Melatonin gave me lots of PF nights.   I have since started a Prednisone taper, and have discontinued the Melatonin.   When I complete the taper, if I feel I need the Melatonin, then I will take it again.    
 
Floridian has posted some great info in regards to Melatonin, Magnesium, and Vitamin D supplements.   If you haven't read his posts, please do.  I swear...he's so knowledgable about CH.  
 
Good luck, and lots of PF vibes,
