Well it's going to depend on what other medications you are on, but if there aren't any contraindications, you could try one or a combination of 5-HTP, magnesium, and diphenhydramine before bed. That would be in addition to the normal sleepytime things that are typically recommended like not having TV/computer screens on or bluish/bright lights on two hours before bedtime, not doing anything that increases your heart rate, body temperature, adrenaline levels, and so on less than two hours before bedtime. Especially if melatonin has had or is having a positive effect you definitely want to avoid light two hours before bedtime because it severely suppresses your body's own melatonin output and the pill form of it only lasts for about 30 minutes to an hour unless you get a timed release version.
