I am exactly the same way, even for easy exams.

Melatonin is great. Highly recommended. I took it during the darkest days of law school. Not the night before the exam (I'm of the opinion that you should sleep well the night before the night before and not mess with your mind just before), but rather when I'd been stressed for weeks on end. I found that I needed exactly eight hours (which is my natural sleep duration) after taking it. Any less and I would feel sort of...fuzzy all the next day. But even then the side effects were very minor for me. As with all these things, you should try one on a few nights when you don't really need to be sharp the next day, in order to gauge the effect.

[quote=tiecollector;294079]Best sleep aid is hands down is melatonin, don't mess with anything else.

Take one of these when you are a little sleepy,

You want the controlled release, otherwise you'll just get a shot of it and might wake up in the middle of the night.[/QUOTe

Been taking melatonin for a while. It does help you to fall asleep, but doesn't help you to sleep thru' the night + it has a tendency to cause weird dreams. For best results, take a cocktail of melatonin + valerian root (to relax your mind)

I have the same problem on occasion, particularly when I have a very early tee time the next day. Maybe that's the problem. Perhaps you're used to going to bed later, and rising earlier, and when you alter that pattern for golf the next day you tend to have trouble sleeping. I'm guessing this only happens before golf? For me, I tend to have trouble sleeping when I have an early tee time especially when playing a tough course like Bethpage Black for example. If it only happens before an early tee time, I woudn't worry about taking medication. Just have a stiff drink to settle the nerves.
