Circadin is a type of medication primarily prescribed to help manage sleep problems. It is a slow release sleeping tablet which helps with short term insomnia.
How does Circadin work?
Circadin contains the active ingredient melatonin, a hormone produced naturally by the body, which helps regulate sleep. Low levels of light cause the brain to produce melatonin, helping you fall asleep naturally. If these levels are depleted, it becomes harder to fall asleep. Circadin boosts your melatonin levels, making sleep easier for you.
It is generally prescribed for people who have short term insomnia, but can also be used by those who suffer from jet lag, and to help blind people establish a day and night cycle.
What are the benefits of Circadin?
If you are having trouble sleeping, this can affect your day to day life in a manner of ways. Not only is being unable to sleep frustrating in itself, it can impact on your days, too. It can affect your mood, impair your concentration, and make mentally exhausting tasks more difficult.
By helping manage your insomnia, Circadin can make life easier for you.
