I was googling around for info about melatonin and found (here) the following: I feel like death when I wake up and although I leave my shutters open overnight (it's very dark outside where I live), the morning light doesn't wake me. My bedroom faces north and maybe doesn't get enough light. Also, I'm pretty much housebound and although I spend much of the day in a south-facing room, I wonder if it's the same as being outside, light-wise. Has anyone tried the kind of light therapy that this article talks about to help reset their body clock and sleep better? I had good results on a short course of melatonin (all that is recommended) but am back to square one now that the course is over. I'm not doing well with sleep meds and would like to try something non-pharma if it has a good chance of working. I'm specifically wondering about what kind of light you'd need. I bought a "sunrise alarm clock" a few years ago that was so dim it barely registered and most certainly didn't wake me or even illuminate the room as much as my 60W lamp. Unless it's going to be a few hundred watts I don't think it's going to impinge on me! Does anyone have any experience with this?
