Details

Melatonin hormone tablets

Medical information

Jet lag arises from a series of symptoms caused by travelling between different time zones by air. Our body produces a hormone called melatonin to make you feel sleepy at bedtime. Your body also has an internal clock which regulates the normal cycle of sleeping at night and being awake in the morning. When travelling rapidly between time zones, it takes time for your melatonin cycle and internal clock system to adjust. The adjust time causes the symptoms of jet lag.


Symptoms
The main symptoms of jet lag are related to disruption of sleeping schedule and include:
  • feeling tired or exhausted at daytime
  • not being able to sleep well at night
  • light-headedness 
  • not being to concentrate well or being less co-ordinated than usual
  • feeling jittery, anxious, irritable or low in mood
  • poorer appetite, which may result in other symptoms such as constipation or indigestion


Management
Symptoms of jet lag disappear gradually after your body has adjusted to the new time zone. There are some tips that may help you manage jet lag:
  • avoid going to sleep until it is a reasonable bed time
  • avoid caffeine drinks 6 hours before you go to bed
  • try to relax before you sleep
  • expose yourself to natural daylight during daytime to help your body adjust


Most people do not need treatment for jet lag. There is no medication currently licensed in the UK for jet lag. However, melatonin hormone tablets have been shown to help the symptoms of jet lag. It is available from Medicinesbymailbox online doctor.
