Ever since ive landed i have not been able to fall asleep fast and also ive been waking up at 3:00am and unable to go back to sleep. Should i try to take melatonin or something else. The lack of sleep these past two days are killing me

AK,

I am sorry to hear this. Not being able to sleep is miserable.

Melatonin, along with Progressive Muscle Relaxation, meditations for sleep and Binaural beats are all great helps.

This is not unusual with a move/new place...it will pass.

Hi AK,

Try melatonin as it works for jet lag troubles.Start at min dose which is 1 mg if cannot feel sleepy at all trywith 3 mg or 5 mg ,max OTC is 10 mg.
You should take it ,I eat it every night or cannot sleep at all.
I have chronic sleep issues.
I take 3 mg along with other sleeping pills.
Keep us posted how it works for you.
