Melatonin (Circadin)

Circadin is a short term insomnia treatment, indicated for patients over the age of 55. It is a prolonged-release tablet containing melatonin, a hormone naturally produced by the human body. This hormone is released by the pineal gland after dark, and encourages the body to sleep. Many older people experience difficulty sleeping because the levels of this hormone decrease with age, leading to primary insomnia. This treatment works by supplementing melatonin levels and aiding sleep in primary insomnia sufferers.

If you are over 55 and suffering with primary insomnia, then Express Doctor can help. We offer a fully secure consultation and prescription service. To buy Circadin from a UK registered pharmacist, simply follow the instructions below to proceed to our easy-to-use online service.
