Need more info: this can be from many causes and the treatment depends on the cause.if jetlag is an issue then yes. but if other reasons like depression that can cause early awakening then need not melatonin but an antidepressant, another possibility is excessive anxiety address anxiety would help, sometimes it's an issue of discomfort if your room is too hot, or mattress is uncomfortable, hunger etc.
