Melotin MR is available in packs of 15 and 30 tablets without a prescription for the short-term treatment of primary insomnia characterised by poor quality of sleep in patients who are aged 55 or over.

Melotin MR is used for the short-term treatment of primary insomnia characterized by poor quality of sleep-in patients who are aged 55 years of age or over.

As we age, the body releases less melatonin naturally.

Melotin MR is a slow-release melatonin formulation that is intended to last throughout the night. This slow releasing form is designed to mimic naturally-occurring melatonin.

Take one 2mg tablet daily, 1-2 hours before bedtime and after food. May be taken for up to 3 weeks.

Melotin MR helps patients with primary insomnia to fall asleep more easily, improve sleep quality and wake feeling alert.

It is not recommended to drive or operate machinery for 8 hours after you take it. Melotin MR does not impair morning alertness, but if you suffer from drowsiness during the day, you should consult your doctor.
