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 five 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 23 tims the targeted maintenance threshold of 1000 pg/ml while the Cmax of REMfresh was less than five times.
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 their desired bedtime. You should instruct your patients to titrate up until they have achieved their desired results. Labeling suggests not to exceed 10 mg per night. REMfresh can be taken with or without food. REMfresh works best as part of a patient’s individualized Sleep Hygiene Cycle™.
Everyone reacts differently to melatonin. A study done with a 2 mg prolonged release melatonin product in Europe shows it may take up to 3 weeks to allow a fuller effect of melatonin.
Q: How will my patients feel when taking REMfresh?
A: When patients take REMfresh, they may feel ready for sleep within 30 minutes to an hour.† If they wake up in the middle of the night while taking REMfresh, they may find it easier to fall back to sleep than with other melatonin products because of the unique release and absorption technology in REMfresh†. It is recommended that the patient take REMfresh when they are aiming for a fuller night’s sleep. The active ingredient in REMfresh, melatonin, is neutralized by your patient’s morning production of cortisol. REMfresh is designed so patients wake up refreshed.†
Q: If my patients have certain food allergies and sensitivities, can they take REMfresh?
A: REMfresh has no added gluten, nuts, shellfish, or dairy products.
Q: Do I need to prescribe REMfresh to my patients?
A: No. REMfresh is available without a prescription at select drug stores and on REMfresh.com and Amazon.com.
