Works wonders for me.
Or get drunk

Melatonin, diphenhydramine, doxylamine succonate, valerian... to the best of my knowledge the ingredients in every single over the counter, non prescription sleep aid that there is. NONE ever worked for me. Not even a little. Though diphenhydramine did have the fun effect of making me sleep twenty hours once I finally did sleep.
I'd love to recommend prescription Ambien because it works. But I cannot because I am one of those people who would black out on it. I'd take it and be wide awake, totally stoned out my mind, and not remember a bit of it the next day. One day I might share the tale of how my last dance with Ambien ended up with my right ear ripped in half and me laughing hysterically about it - much to my ex-girlfriends exceptionally angry dismay.
Lunesta, another prescription only medication did diddly for me.
Now, my PTSD medication - Klonopin works. But it isn't labeled for insomnia.
