1 It has been shown that 5-hydroxytryptamine and melatonin, an indoleamine for which 5-hydroxytryptamine is a precursor, influence the release of vasopressin and oxytocin from the rat hypothalamus both in vivo and in vitro. Melatonin arginine vasopressin Rattus norvegicus
2 The oral administration of melatonin has been shown to decrease oxytocin release and modulate the nocturnal vasopressin release in humans. Melatonin arginine vasopressin Rattus norvegicus
