Shift work: Shift work sleep disorders are common and troublesome. You must create as close to normal sleep time as possible with dark sleeping room. Alerting agents are available which can be used to help your biological clock. These include Provigil and Nuvigil which are prescription drugs and unfortunately expensive.
