Description

What is Circadin and what is it used for?

Circadin (melatonin) 2mg tablets ease symptoms of jet lag in people travelling over three or more time zones. Circadin 2mg tablets are available to buy from Star pharmacy. If you are suitable for treatment a supply can be made, otherwise a full refund will be given.

Jet lag usually only occurs if you travel across three or more time zones, otherwise, you should not need to take melatonin. Jet lag can be particularly bad when travelling east. Plan for melatonin treatment on your return home in addition to arrival at your destination.

Unlike some other ‘sleep’ medications, Circadin does not result in tiredness or grogginess in the morning. This is because it does not depress your central nervous systems like other hypnotic drugs and sleeping tablets. For this reason, it is not advisable to use traditional sleeping medicines to treat jet lag.

How does Circadin work?

Circadin 2mg tablets contain the active ingredient melatonin, a hormone that the body releases when it is dark, letting your body know it is time for sleep. Melatonin helps to regulate the body’s clock (circadian rhythm) and acts on chemical receptors in the brain to promote sleep. Melatonin in Circadin 2mg tablets will help alter your normal circadian rhythm, allowing you to sleep when it is dark in your new time zone and ease the symptoms of jet lag.

What does ‘off label’ mean?

Circadin is used to treat Jet Lag as ‘off label’. This means that the medicine is being used to treat a condition other than those that it was initially licensed to treat. For example, Circadin has been licensed to treat insomnia but can also be used ‘off-label’ to relieve jet lag.

This means that there is less established data regarding the effectiveness of this treatment for the condition which it is prescribed and means that the instructions contained in the product information leaflet will not match the condition you are treating. You should always follow the instructions on the dispensing label on your medicine and contact us if you have any questions.

Benefits of Circadin

Alternative methods to treat Jet Lag

Circadin is a natural choice to help improve symptoms of Jet Lag. Taking other forms of sleeping tablets at night may also improve how quickly and how soundly you sleep after flying, but they can also cause side effects and can be addictive.

Practical ways to reduce symptoms of jet lag:

Avoid napping.

Try to sleep at a normal hour in your new time zone

Try to stay outdoors as much as possible, natural light will help speed up the process.

Try to eat at normal hours for your new time zone and not the one you’re used to at home.
