Try Melatonin. You can get it overcounter at the pharmacy.

take it 20 mins before bed when you change shift for a day or 2 then get off it.

It will readjust yer internal clock without making you drowsey.

Doesnt work for all, but it works for me.

I tried Melatonin several times when I was working for Dow and traveling all over the place - China, Argentina, Thailand, etc. Never worked for me.

I just force myself back onto local hours right away and adjust. I resist naps until I've been back for at least a week, but I do fall asleep pretty early in the evening and wake with the chickens those first few days back.
