Our research team at UC San Diego is conducting a study to learn more about the effects of Melatonin treatment in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). We are seeking volunteers who have been diagnosed with OSA but are not currently using treatment for it. The results of this study may improve our understanding of OSA and help in the development of new and improved treatments.
