Order Jet Lag Treatment Online

What is Jet Lag?

The earth is divided into 24 time zones: time changes by one hour for every 150 degrees of travel east or west of the Greenwich meridian. Our bodies are programmed to be active and alert during the day and to sleep at night. Travelling across the earth's time zones disrupts these natural rhythms, resulting in extreme tiredness referred to as jet lag.

Jet lag can take several days to overcome, therefore our service can help you plan ahead to minimise jet lag. This treatment service is for patients who will be flying to another country where the time difference is more than three hours.

All services provided by Anytime Doctor are safe, fast and confidential. You can obtain treatment within the privacy of your home and without the inconvenience of waiting for an appointment.

How the service works

Complete consultation

Complete a free online medical consultation. Your answers provide our doctors with the information they need to safely recommend the right treatment for you.

Choose treatment

A doctor will review your consultation and, if it is safe to do so, approve you for treatment. Our doctors will suggest suitable treatment options, including dosage and treatment duration. Select your medicine and complete your order using our secure payment system.

Prescription issued

All prescriptions are sent electronically to our UK based partner pharmacy, ready for dispatch. Our partner pharmacy is regulated by the General Pharmaceutical Council and only dispenses genuine branded medicines licensed for use in the UK.

Medicine delivered

Medicines require a signature upon delivery. Most orders are dispensed and dispatched for delivery the next working day. All orders are sent using discrete packaging with no mention of Anytime Doctor or the parcel content. Upgrade to same day delivery for orders within the M25.

All of our prices are fully inclusive. When buying your treatment online our price includes the cost of the consultation, the issuing of a private prescription, dispensing of the medicine itself, free delivery and doctor after-care. There are no hidden extras.

We aim to offer you similar pattern of healthcare as if you were to visit your normal GP for a face to face consultation. We believe it is important that you complete a medical consultation to ensure that the treatment option you are requesting is appropriate for your needs. Our GMC registered doctors are also able to suggest treatment options for you if you prefer. Once a doctor has approved you for treatment all prices are clearly displayed. Your medical consultation and registration is free and you are under no obligation to purchase any treatment after your consultation.

In order to manage some conditions online, we are required to inform your GP about the medicine you have been prescribed. This will be clearly highlighted during your consultation. We will not contact or share this information with your GP without your consent. You are required to provide consent each time you order, so you remain in full control of when we contact your GP on your behalf.

Your Anytime Doctor medical record is confidential and securely stored on our UK data servers. We will never share your details unless you expressly ask us to do so.

Symptoms of jet lag include:

  • extreme tiredness
  • insomnia
  • stomach upsets
  • aches and pains
  • disorientation

When you arrive at your destination, going for a nap is the worst thing you can do, because it sets your body's rhythms back to home time. Staying active on arrival will help the body adjust to the new time zone. As eating and sleeping are your body's time indicators, it is also important to fit in with what the locals are doing when you arrive. Exposing yourself to as much daylight as possible might also be a good idea, because it has been shown that bright light can help to reset circadian rhythms.
