What is Circadin?

Circadin is a popular jet lag treatment that contains the hormone melatonin to aid with sleep and your body clock. It is available in tablet form in a 2mg prolonged release dosage. Prolonged release means that melatonin is released slowly from the tablet over several hours – giving you a consistent dose of the medication.

How does Circadin work?

Circadin is a melatonin-based treatment to help regulate your sleep patterns. Melatonin is a naturally occurring hormone that plays an essential role in maintaining the body's circadian rhythms. In terms of sleep patterns, melatonin regulates when you feel awake and when you sleep. In simple terms, higher levels of melatonin are produced when it is dark, and lower levels are produced when it is light.

Melatonin-based medications can help with sleep disruption because a synthetic version of the hormone is supplied to the body when sleep would otherwise be disturbed, such as when different time zones are crossed and jet lag causes such a disturbance.

What are the benefits of Circadin?

Though it is only temporary, jet lag is a particularly annoying condition for people because it can spoil the beginning of a holiday or trip, and disrupt sleeping upon your return also. The symptoms, such as lack of energy and tiredness, can take days to fade. Circadin (melatonin) can help you to avoid such symptoms, meaning you will be able to enjoy your travelling experience sooner.

Melatonin allows your sleep patterns to adjust more naturally than through the use of sleeping pills, which have associated risks such as addiction and side effects.

In clinical trials, 32% of patients reported large improvements in quality sleep compared to the group taking a Circadin placebo.

How do I take Circadin tablets?

The medicine contained in Circadin (melatonin) is usually prescribed as an insomnia treatment, in which case a normal course of treatment is three weeks. When used to relieve the symptoms of jet lag, there is no need to follow this course of treatment.

You will only need to take the medication on an as-needed basis after you have arrived at your destination, and/or on your return. One tablet should be swallowed whole, with water, one or two hours before you hope to fall asleep.

If you are taking a melatonin-based treatment, you should avoid consuming alcohol, as this can affect the efficacy of the medication.

What dosages are available with Circadin?

Circadin comes in one standard dosage of 2mg. This is a prolonged release tablet, which means you get a consistent release of the medicine after you've taken it. This quantity has been specifically formulated by the manufacturer to be maximally effective whilst simultaneously minimising potential side effects.

Are there any side effects when taking Circadin 2mg?

Side effects are not very common with this treatment, but some mild effects, such as irritability, dry mouth, and anxiety may occur. If you notice any serious side effects, or are concerned about a particular side effect, you should seek medical attention immediately.

More common Less common Less common
Headache Dizziness Mood swings

What are the precautions/interactions of Circadin?

Circadin (melatonin) is a prescription medication and as such will not be suitable for everyone. Certain health conditions like kidney or liver problems, or medications like oral psoriasis treatments can affect your suitability for the medication. If you choose to purchase Circadin from HealthExpress, you will need to complete an online consultation, during which you will be asked to note any health conditions you have or any medications that you are taking. Based on this information, the doctor will be able to assess whether Circadin is suitable for you to use.

For further information about the side effects, precautions, and interactions of Circadin, please refer to the patient information leaflet. This is included with your medication, and is available for download towards the bottom of this page.
