How do jet lag tablets work?

We provide melatonin tablets (known by the brand name Circadin) that can be used for the treatment of jet lag in adults. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the body, which helps to control your sleep cycle. Melatonin tablets add to the body’s natural supply of the hormone. This should make your symptoms less severe.

The advised dose for adults is 1 melatonin 3mg tablet daily, which you take for a maximum of 5 days. If the effects of the melatonin tablets are not working, 2 tablets can be taken together.

You should take your first dose once you arrive at your destination, at your usual bedtime. You can then continue to take it at bedtime for a total of 5 nights. You should not take melatonin any earlier than 8pm or any later than 4am.

Melatonin tablets should be swallowed whole with water. You should not eat 2 hours before or 2 hours after you have taken the tablet. Melatonin tablets can be taken for a maximum of 16 treatment periods over 12 months.

Melatonin tablets are slow releasing and normally take around 1 to 2 hours to kick in. When you take melatonin tablets, it lets your body know it’s time for bed, which will help you relax and fall asleep.
