I take melatonin (3 mg) and 5_HTD (50-100 mg) two to three hours before bed time. It doesn't make the pain any better, but does allow me to sleep right through some HA's. When awakened during the peak of my cycle, I am so deep in sleep that the pain hasn't fully registered yet, so I can usually get to the lidocaine, oxygen, whatever...
5-HTD along with melatonin is available at any health food store (GNCs, etc.) I would caution you against taking melatonin during the day any earlier than 8:00 p.m., unless you want to walk around like a zombie - it really works for a sleep aid.
