Insomnia is a condition characterised by an inability to sleep. It can happen for a number of reasons, although in older people it generally occurs due to the body naturally producing less of a particular hormone, called melatonin. This is called primary insomnia, and is most common in people over 55.

Our online clinic service enables you to buy or renew the primary insomnia treatment you need safely and quickly. Just take our short consultation, and once our doctor has reviewed your case and approved your medication, a prescription will be issued and sent directly to our dispensing pharmacy. At our pharmacy your order will be packed and shipped to you by 24 hour courier.

Primary insomnia treatment is not available over the counter, meaning that you cannot get it in the UK without a prescription. Our service puts you in touch with a doctor remotely, so that they can issue a prescription if they deem the medication suitable for you to use.

What are the side effects?

A full list of possible side effects will be provided with the medication, and you should familiarise yourself with this prior to use. If you notice anything unusual when taking the treatment, you should inform your doctor or your nearest hospital immediately.

  • Common (Less than 1 in 10): Stomach ache and slight nausea
  • Uncommon (Less than 1 in 100): Skin irritation
  • Rare (Less than 1 in 1000): Hair loss, low blood pressure, anxiety and depression

You are more at risk of side effects if:
