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.
