Urgent Advice! Combatting Jetlag: JFK-LHR-SFO-LHR

Thu Mar 08, 2007 6:23 pm


Just after a quick tip really.

I'm on holiday doing LHR-JFK LGA-ORD-EWR, JFK-BOS-JFK, JFK-LHR FROM 15th March - 24th March.

Work contacted me yesterday, and are sending me to CA for a few days so after I land in the UK on 24th March I'll be back off on LHR-SFO on 29th March to 8th April

Flights are as follows:

24TH VS26 JFK-LHR 744 0835 - 1915

29TH VS19 LHR-SFO 744 1100-1350

8TH VS20 SFO-LHR 744 1630-1030

I need to be fully alert when I land in London from New York [friends staying for 2 days the next day] and in SFO [work].

Please advise!!!!

Some artificial epinephrine, it comes in 10 mg syringes. It massively increases the amount of adrenaline in your body. Use one after each flight.  Big grin

Is it the kerosene, or is it just me...

Get a prescription for some sleeping medication (Ambien, perhaps). Try to sleep on the flights and then take it at night for a few days after crossing a lot of time zones. You might not feel perfect, but it will help you sleep through the night and adjust more quickly.
