How to Use Circadin September 21, 2014
  • Circadin® should be taken after food, 1-2 hours before bedtime1

  • Swallow the tablet whole – do not crush, chew or divide it if you wish to maintain the prolonged release properties

  • Circadin® does not have a “hammer” effect – you should just feel a natural sleepiness and desire to go to bed between 1-2 hours after taking it

  • Alcohol should not be taken with Circadin®, because it has a bad effect on sleep maintenance

  • For the best effect on quality of sleep you should take Circadin® at around the same time each night for the full 13 week treatment period and then see your doctor for review

  • If you have been using any other type of sleep medication before being prescribed Circadin® ask your doctor for advice on how to stop taking it in a gradual manner and switch over to Circadin®
