What are some medications or treatments w/o life threatening side effects that can help someone stop smoking? Other than the e-cig and nicotine gum.

Hypnotherapy: Hypnotherapy can break tobacco habits. It can make the use of the tobacco product aversive - even disgusting.

Some people have: Paradoxical (opposite than expected) effects from Melatonin, including agitation, nightmares and, yes, sleeplessness--the very thing you take it for... (How are you quitting smoking? I wonder if your treatment for that has anything to do with your sx's?) Stopping is OK. Try other OTC sleep aids--Valerian Root, Benadryl, (diphenhydramine) herbal teas, etc.
