What is Circadin?

Circadin contains melatonin. Melatonin is a natural hormone that our body releases after the onset of darkness. It makes people feel sleepy and it helps to regulate the body’s circadian rhythm. Circadin is licensed to be used on its own for short-term use in people aged 55 and over, who find it difficult to get to, or to stay, asleep. It should not be used in people who cannot sleep due to a medical, mental or environmental cause. It is also used off-licence in the treatment of jet-lag. It has been found to be particularly effective in those who are travelling eastwards.

How can I buy Circadin?

Circadin is a Prescription Only Medicine (POM) and cannot be bought over the counter. If you are interested in this medicine, why not fill out our consultation questionnaire? This will be reviewed by one of our expert doctors who will advise if this medicine is suitable and safe for you.

Circadin should not be taken by anybody with a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients.

Circadin is not recommended for use in those with an autoimmune disease.

Circadin should be used in caution in people with renal or liver impairment and you should speak to your doctor before use as its use is not recommended.
