What are melatonin tablets?

Melatonin tablets are commonly used to treat jet lag. If you are flying long haul for a holiday or work trip, you may worry about getting jet lag.

Common symptoms of jet lag include:

  • sleep disturbances
  • fatigue
  • daytime tiredness
  • irritability
  • concentration and memory problems

Jet lag can happen any time you travel quickly across two or more time zones. If you are travelling long distances across multiple time zones, you are more at risk of feeling sleepy and sluggish. It can take several days to fully recover from jet lag. Using melatonin tablets can help get rid of symptoms quicker.

Melatonin tablets are a manmade version of melatonin that can relieve jet lag symptoms. Melatonin is a hormone that naturally occurs in your body, which helps to manage your sleep patterns. Melatonin tablets can help you fall asleep quicker and make it less likely for you to wake up through the night.

How do melatonin tablets work?

Melatonin tablets work by helping to control your sleep cycle. When it gets dark, your body produces melatonin, which peaks in the early hours of the morning, and begins to reduce during daylight hours.

Melatonin acts on receptors in your body which promote sleep. When you take melatonin tablets, this adds to the natural supply of the hormone in your body.
