Melatonin, herbals: There are many types and causes of insomnia. Assuming yours is the occasional, stress-related type (rather than one such as depression that requires more specific treatment), melatonin and/or various herbal mixtures (such as those sold at whole foods or earth fare) are relatively safe and sometimes quite helpful.
