Find cause: You may be getting into a drug dependency that is unwise. Insomnia needs further assessment. Sleep issues can be associated with many medical, psychological, environmental issues as well as sleep hygiene. Please review your situation with prescribing doctor and consider exam with pcp for additional guidance. Hope this helps.
