I carry melatonin which helps some if I remember to use it. I forgot on my way 
to Tokyo, big mistake.I'd found that the latest batch of melatonin we got 
didn't seem to work as well as previously so I researched maybe taking too. 
Turns out we've got 3mg stuff now where we had 1mg before and in some cases 
with melatonin less is more. I experimented in Manila with taking 1/2 a pill 
and actually found it was more effective. Go figure huh?

We used to get a “medical kit” when we traveled that had some “happy pills” in 
it to help us sleep.  When I used to go from places like Singapore to Tokyo to 
Chicago I would have a drink, meal, then take a pill and be lights out until 
just before landing in Chicago.

You would still be fuzzy for a day or two afterwards, but it did help the 
transition.

My kids always got a kick out of how I could leave Singapore at 07:00 local 
time and be back home the same day late in the afternoon.  Try explaining that 
to a 6 year old.
