In brief: It depends.

There are a number of different ways to attempt to decrease the severity of jet lag.
In some cases the intervention chosen depends on whether you were flying east to west or west to east. Melatonin can sometimes be helpful as can phototherapy. The following website has a nice list of options available to you. http://www.emedicinehealth.com/script/main/art.asp?articlekey=137775&ref=134813.
