this subject has been discussed on this board at various times. here's an article from our local paper this past sunday. the article also mentions the fleetstreet clinic and its jet lag calculator.

I just read that wearing dark sunglasses while on the plane helps against jetlag.

Just read this when searching to find out what melatonin is...

Should I take melatonin for sleep problems or jet lag?

It might be better not to take melatonin until we know more about it. If you decide to try it, talk to your doctor first. Be sure to tell him or her if you have any medical conditions, are taking any other medicine (prescription, over-the-counter or herbal) and if you are pregnant or nursing. It is unclear what effect melatonin can have on an unborn baby or nursing infant.

Has anyone had any problems when taking this? I've never used it before, but I'd like to look into it...
