Melatonin Tablets

Melatonin Tablets contain the active substance melatonin. Melatonin tablets can be used for treatment of jet lag in adults. Jet lag can be recognized by sleep disturbances, daytime tiredness, fatigue, mild mental impairment, irritability and digestive system disturbances experienced after flying.

Melatonin tablets work because of the active ingredient. Melatonin is a hormone produced by the body that synchronizes the body’s biological day-and-night rhythm. The biological rhythm can be disturbed by travelling across time zones. This is known as jet lag. The symptoms and their severity vary between individuals, but are generally worse and last longer the more time zones are crossed. Melatonin tablets can help restore the normal day-and-night rhythm and reduce the symptoms.

Melatonin Tablets 2mg

Melatonin Tablets 2mg contain the active substance melatonin. Melatonin is often used for the treatment of jet lag in adults.

Jet lag is caused by a disruption in your normal sleep pattern that is usually caused by travelling on long-distance flights over multiple time zones.

Melatonin Tablets 2mg can help relieve the symptoms of jet lag:

  • Difficulty sleeping at night and waking in the morning
  • Tiredness and fatigue in the day
  • Poor quality sleep
  • Difficulty concentrating and remembering
  • Indigestion, nausea, constipation

Jet lag typically improves within a few days without treatment, however taking Melatonin Tablets 2mg can help improve sleep quality from day-one making it easier for you to enjoy your trip or to adjust faster to normal life after arriving back home.

Melatonin 3mg Tablets

Melatonin 3mg Tablets are usually not prescribed for sleeping problems. To help sleeping problems in adults, Melatonin Tablets 2mg slow-release (or prolonged-release) will be prescribed. Melatonin will be gradually released into the body during the night.

It’s important to follow instructions carefully. Your doctor may tell you to take Melatonin 3mg Tablets only 2 or 3 times a week, and not every night.

For short-term sleep problems, Melatonin 3mg Tablets will only need to be taken for just a few weeks, this includes insomnia. However, Melatonin 3mg Tablets can sometimes be prescribed for up to 13 weeks.

Melatonin 5 Mg Tablet

Although jet lag may be unavoidable and you’ll need medication like Melatonin 5 Mg Tablet to treat it, there are things you can do to reduce its effects.

Get plenty of rest before you travel. You should also start going to bed and getting up earlier than usual (more like the time zone of the destination you are travelling to). This will cause your body to adjust easier once you enter a different time zone.

During your flight make sure to drink plenty of water, keep active by stretching, and try to sleep if it’s night time at your destination. Make sure you avoid drinking alcohol or too much caffeine, as they can make jet lag worse.

Once you arrive at your destination, make sure to change your sleep schedule to the new time zone as soon as possible. The faster you do this, the faster your body will adjust. An alarm should also be set to avoid oversleeping in the morning. Natural light will also help your body clock adjust, so make certain you go outside during the day.

Melatonin 10mg Tablets

Melatonin 10mg tablets with food, drink and alcohol

  • This medicine should not be taken with food.
  • As alcohol can impair sleep and potentially worsen certain symptoms of jet lag (e.g., headache, morning fatigue, concentration) it is recommended that alcohol is not consumed while taking Melatonin 10mg tablets.

Pregnancy, breast-feeding and fertility

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking Melatonin 10mg tablets.


Melatonin 10mg tablets are not recommended if you are pregnant. Melatonin crosses the placenta and there is insufficient information on the risk this may pose to the unborn child. If you are woman of childbearing potential you have to use contraception.


Melatonin sleeping tablets are not recommended if you are breast-feeding. Melatonin is excreted in human milk, and a risk to the suck child cannot be excluded.


Melatonin tablets are not recommended in women and men planning to have a baby as there is insufficient information on the effects of melatonin on female and male fertility.

Melatonin Sleeping Tablets

Always take melatonin sleeping tablets exactly as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. Check with your doctor if you are not sure.

The recommended melatonin sleeping tablets dose for adults and elderly is 1 tablet daily for a maximum of 5 days. When the effect of melatonin sleeping tablets is inadequate, 2 tablets can be taken simultaneously.

The first dose should be taken on arrival at destination at your usual bed-time. Intake on the following days should also be at your usual bed-time. The tablets should not be taken before 20:00 hr or after 4:00 hr.

Melatonin sleeping tablets should be swallowed whole with water or other liquid (e.g., milk, fruit juice). Food should not be consumed 2 hours before or 2 hours after intake of Melatonin sleeping tablets.

For optimal results, make sure you are relaxed before bed, keeping your room dark, cool and comfortable.

Cherry Melatonin Tablets

Cherry Melatonin Tablets are one of many different flavours these tablets are available in. Other brands also include flavours like strawberry and citrus.

Flavoured melatonin tablets like cherry melatonin tablets are dissolvable, meaning they can be taken any time and without water.

Herbal Melatonin Tablets

Herbal Melatonin Tablets are also available, but don’t mistake these for melatonin tablets that also include herbal remedies. Herbal remedies that make you feel sleepy should not be taken whilst also taking melatonin.

Herbal remedies can increase the sedating effects of melatonin and make you much drowsier. Make sure you are purchasing herbal melatonin tablets that are flavoured and not ones that are mixed with other ingredients.

How Many Melatonin Tablets Should I Take?

A common question we often see relating to this product is “How many melatonin tablets should I take?”

The usual dose is one 3mg tablet of melatonin but your doctor may recommend 2 tablets (6mg) if needed. Melatonin should be taken 1 to 2 hours before bedtime. This is because melatonin takes a couple of hours to start working.

Higher strengths of melatonin are available. Any strengths higher than 3mg should be discussed with your doctor.

If you have any other questions relating to “How many melatonin tablets should I take?” please contact our customer support team.

Jet Lag

Jet lag is when your normal sleep pattern is disturbed after a long flight. Symptoms usually improve within a few days as your body adjusts to the new time zone.

Ways to reduce jet lag

Jet lag can’t be prevented, but there are things you can do to reduce its effects.

Before you travel


get plenty of rest
relax before going to bed and follow good sleep practices
gradually change your sleep routine – start going to bed and getting up an hour or two earlier or later than usual (in line with the time of your destination)


eat large meals, exercise, use electronic gadgets, or drink alcohol or caffeinated drinks before bedtime

During your flight


drink plenty of water
sleep if it’s a normal time for sleeping at your destination
use an eye mask and earplugs if they help you sleep
keep active by stretching and regularly walking around the cabin


drink too much caffeine or alcohol – they can make jet lag worse

After you arrive


change your sleep schedule to the new time zone as quickly as possible
set an alarm to avoid oversleeping in the morning
go outside during the day – natural light will help your body clock adjust


go to sleep until a reasonable hour for your new destination

If your trip is short (2 to 3 days) it may be better to stay on “home time”.

If possible, eat and sleep at the times you would at home.

Medicines aren’t usually needed for jet lag.

Symptoms often improve after a few days as your body clock adjusts to the new time zone.

Sleeping tablets may be helpful if you’re having problems sleeping (insomnia). They can be addictive so should only be used for a short time and if symptoms are severe.

Melatonin is a chemical released by the body in the evening to let your brain know it’s time to sleep. Melatonin supplements can be used but aren’t recommended for jet lag because there isn’t enough evidence that they work.

Symptoms of jet lag

The main symptoms are sleep-related. They include:

difficulty sleeping at bedtime and waking up in the morning
tiredness and exhaustion
finding it difficult to stay awake during the day
poor sleep quality
concentration and memory problems
Jet lag can also be associated with indigestion, constipation, diarrhoea and bloating.
