Bedtime Routine

A consistent bedtime routine

A consistent routine helps set your body’s internal clock so it knows what to expect at a particular time of day or night. Doing the same activities every night can reinforce the routine. It’s a signal to your body that it’s time to go to sleep.

Part of your routine should be getting up at the same time every day—even on weekends.

Select a wakeup time.


To start building your routine when taking DAYVIGO, enter the time you
need to be up every morning in the clock below. Then, let’s calculate your bedtime.

Calculating your bedtime

This is the latest time you should be in bed based on planning to get up after 7 hours.

You need to take DAYVIGO immediately before going to bed, and only when you know you’re able to get at least 7 hours of sleep. DAYVIGO may take longer to work if you take it with or soon after a meal. Also, if your healthcare provider has recommended more than 7 hours of sleep, follow their directions. Just make sure you consistently go to bed at the same time.

A bedtime routine is more than going to bed at the same time each night.

Try taking a half hour to an hour before your calculated bedtime to wind down. This will help your body know it’s ready for sleep. You’ll need to add time for this wind down when planning your bedtime.

There may be other things that you’ll want to adjust—and avoid—to help you relax before bedtime.
