23 jet lag situations, from West +1 to East -1, are described here. I begin
with the specific problems that may be encountered in each case, as well as a list of
specific solutions. These solutions start with no-nonsense measures; go on to speeding
up the adjustment using bright light and melatonin; then to sleeping pills; and, if
nothing else works, to strong doses of caffeine and stimulants. I suggest you use a
graduated, step-by-step response and to go to the next level only if you have an
insufficient result. I will end with a few comments based on my own experience over
the years as a traveller.
