Natural healthy sleep aid for unusual circumstances

I've been taking a 5mg dose of melatonin for the past couple months to help me fall asleep and stay asleep. i work nights 3 days of the week and wake up around 7 the other of the days. Therefore i need a solution for a non drowsy fast acting sleep aid. Things like benadryl and Zzzquil seem excessive and don't leave me feeling refreshed in the morning. I've been aware of possible negative affects like eventual insomnia from using melatonin to mess with your pituitary hormones. Any help would be appreciated, until then i will continue my melatonin routine as usual

Solaray has a sleep formula with herbs, but it's not fast acting. A Unisom, which is an anti-histamine sleep aid, will give you a hang over in the morning, but if you only take half, it's still effective and you're okay the next day.
