It contains a melatonin-based medication which can help regulate sleep patterns. Melatonin is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body and monitors circadian rhythms. When it's night time the body produces more melatonin than during the day, but travelling to a different time zone can throw this rhythm off, therefore taking a melatonin supplement at night can ease the body into a new sleeping pattern, allowing you to get on with your routine as normal.
The Jet Lag Treatment Pack is available on prescription and, like all prescription treatments, it might not be suitable for everybody to take. People who might not be suitable to take this are those with kidney or liver problems or who are taking oral medicines for psoriasis.
If you are ordering this online from 121doc, you should ensure that you answer the online consultation as thoroughly as possible, listing all the information about your current and past medical condition.
Please note that this contains melatonin, which is widely prescribed to ease or prevent the symptoms of jet lag, however it's not specifically intended for that purpose. This is why it is often prescribed off-label.
The melatonin-based product is normally prescribed as a treatment for insomnia for which the duration is three weeks. If it's used to help avoid the symptoms of jet lag it should be used as and when needed as soon as you arrive at your destination.
To help aid sleep, one tablet should be taken whole with a glass of water one to two hours before your bedtime. It's not advised to use this medication with large quantities of alcohol as this may inhibit the working of the medication.
Side effects aren't a big risk while taking the medication in the treatment pack, but some people may be more sensitive and could develop mild side effects such as irritability, anxiety and dry mouth. These effects aren't serious and shouldn't last, but if you start to notice anything more serious, you should seek immediate medical attention.
121doc sells the Jet Lag Treatment Pack online, but we ask all our patients to complete a quick and confidential consultation. This allows our doctors to make sure that this is right for you. If your consultation is reviewed and the doctor feels that you can use this safely, they will issue a prescription. This prescription will then be passed to our pharmacy, where a pharmacist will dispense it. All orders are then shipped for free next day delivery, however there is the option to order the treatment for same day delivery to London destinations.
