Dosing and administration
What is the optimal dose for Circadin®? Will Circadin® be available at different dosages in the future?
Why can’t I take Circadin® together with alcohol? How long do you have to wait between dinner with a couple of glasses of wine and intake of Circadin®?
Why is Circadin® only for people aged 55 and over? Can Circadin® be used in adult patients younger than 55 years?
However, the current indication for Circadin®, as stated in the Summary of Product Characteristics (SPC), is for use in people aged 55 and over1. The physicians would need to make their own clinical judgement, in consultation with the patient, if they were to use Circadin® to treat younger adults suffering from insomnia.
