REMfresh® Frequently Asked Questions


Q: If there is a high Cmax, can there be tolerability issues with conventional melatonin?

A: No conclusive evidence is available. In the REMAKT trial, the treatment emergent adverse events (TEAE’s) in the conventional melatonin arm numbered 5 while the REMfresh® arm had none. All five TEAE’s were CNS or GI in nature. The Cmax in the conventional melatonin arm was more than 23x the targeted maintenance threshold of 1000 pg/ml while the Cmax of REMfresh® was less than 5x.

Q: How do my patients take REMfresh®?

A: We suggest patients start with one 2 mg or 5 mg caplet of REMfresh® 30 to 60 minutes before desired bedtime. You should instruct your patients to titrate up until they achieved their desired results. Labeling suggest not to exceed 10mg per night. REMfresh® can be taken with or without food.
