can insomnia affect you after it has been treated?

Yes: It depends on what was causing the insomnia, how it was treated, and whether you've continued treatment long enough. For instance, if your insomnia was related to depression and you did not continue therapy or medications long enough, the symptoms (including insomnia) could come back. Or, your doctor may not have found an effective treatment for you yet. Please don't give up!
