About jet lag treatment

  • Circadin for jet lag

    Travelling to another time zone can cause insomnia, irritability, a change in appetite and general tiredness – generally we call this collection of symptoms jet lag.

    We can prescribe Circadin, which is used by some people to successfully treat sleep disturbance that comes with jet lag. It contains melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone that regulates your sleep patterns. For some people, it can help them adjust more quickly to a new time zone and sleep at night.

  • Side effects

    All medicines can have side effects, and they can vary between different people. Some people experience drowsiness with Circadin, feel sick, or experience joint aches, pain or headaches. You can read more about possible side effects in the patient information leaflet. We will only prescribe for you if it safe to do so.

  • Benefits of treatment

    Sleeping through the night can significantly improve the symptoms of jet lag, making you feel awake at the right time. Circadin helps some people to do this, and enjoy more of their time away. It won't cure or prevent jet lag, but it can help your body adjust more quickly to your destination's time.

  • Our jet lag clinic

    Request the treatment and complete a short consultation questionnaire. We will use this information to assess whether Circadin jet lag tablets are safe and suitable for you to take. If approved, you can collect your treatment or have it delivered.

    Please note, you should never share prescription medicines.
