The active substance in Noxarem Melatonin is melatonin. Melatonin, naturally produced by the body, promotes sleep and sleep regulation. Noxarem Melatonin is used in the short-term treatment of jet lag (jet lag syndrome) in adults. Jet lag refers to symptoms caused by jet lag when you travel across several time zones – east or west, such as sleep disturbances and disrupted body clock.
Melatonin can cause drowsiness. Therefore, the product should be used with caution if the effects of drowsiness are likely to pose a safety concern.
Noxarem Melatonin is indicated for the short-term treatment of jet lag (jet lag syndrome) in adults
The standard dose is one 3 mg tablet daily, at bedtime (local time), on arrival at destination, for up to 4 days. If the standard dose of 3 mg does not adequately relieve symptoms, a 5 mg tablet may be taken instead of the 3 mg tablet at bedtime. The 5 mg tablet should not be taken in addition to the 3 mg tablet, but the dose may be increased on subsequent days. The maximum daily dose is 5 mg once a day. The dose that adequately relieves symptoms should be taken for the shortest possible time. As taking melatonin at an incorrect time may have no effect or cause adverse effects, when resynchronising following jet lag, melatonin should not be taken before 8pm or after 4am, once you have arrived at your destination.
Potential adverse effects induced by short-term use for jet lag include headache, nausea, loss of appetite, dizziness, daytime sleepiness and disorientation.
