Well: This is a difficult question to answer as there are many different reasons people have difficulty sleeping including anxiety, depression, poor sleep environment, poor sleep hygiene, stimulates (such as caffeine), medications, mania, and other. If your current medication is not working, contact your doctor and discuss other options.
