I take ZMA (Zinc Monomethionine Aspartate) before bed. It helps me get and stay in a deep sleep mode. I tend to have some wild "ZMA" dreams and a morning kick-stand but these aren't really bad drawbacks. I buy these over the internet (bulknutrition dot com is pretty reasonable).
I'll also take a melaton supplement (purchased at WalMart) but try to limit this to two times a week max as I don't want to affect my body's natural melatoin production.
If you try ZMA, keep in mind that you have to avoid calcium pre-bed b/c it significantly reduces the effectiveness.
