For about a 5 year period I worked a crazy schedule. I'd work 2 5am-1pm shifts, then an 11am-7pm, and then 2 5pm-1am shifts. I never knew if it was time to get up or go to bed. I wasn't sleeping at all and my doctor suggested melatonin. The only thing it did was help me go to sleep...that's it. I had no lingering effects at all. I definitely feel groggy and out of it with Tylenol PM and all those other "PM" drugs.
