Jet Lag

Jet lag occurs when travelling from one time zone to another. Sleep patterns are usually disturbed after a long flight and can cause fatigue, insomnia, poor sleep quality, and irregular sleeping patterns.

There is no treatment for jet lag, but symptoms can be managed. Avoid alcohol and caffeine as these can make symptoms worse. Try not to take naps when arriving in the new time zone, and try sleep at the usual hours as in the previous time zone.

Medications are also available from Pharmacy Online to manage jet lag. Speak to a member of the team for further information.

Treatments

Melatonin is a chemical that is produced in the brain to create signals for the body to sleep. Tablets are available that contain Melatonin, which can be useful in people that experience insomnia associated with jet lag. If you are planning on travelling between time zones, speak with a member of our team to find out if this option is beneficial for you.
