Hi, depending what country you live in, you can buy Melatonin OTC. it occurs naturally in our bodies so it isn't chemical based. Although a natural product, it can be quite potent so start off on a low dose. As far as I'm aware you can buy it in strengths of 3,5 & 6mg tablets. You must have a dark room to sleep in for the tablets to work most effectively. They worked well for me.

I alternate between Unisom and Tylenol PM so that they stay effective and my body doesn't build a tolerance to one or the other, so you might try that. Just switch up whatever meds you take. I also try not to take anything a couple nights a week, like on weekends when it's ok if I don't sleep well since I don't have to work the next day.
I tried melatonin, and though it does work, I had the most vivid, scary and disturbing dreams when I took it. So I looked it up online and vivid dreams and nightmares are listed as a side effect of melatonin!
