Melatonin: Melatonin is available OTC. Give that a try and if your sleep is no better in 2 weeks then see your doctor

Insomnia: Many conditions can cause insomnia. Some of them such as sleep apnea is a serious condition, associated with stopping breathing during sleep which can lead to daytime somnolence, palpitations and congestive heart failure. It is important to determine cause before treating insomnia. Sleep hygiene is helpful. Do not watch TV or read a book or pay bills in your bedroom.
