Looks : Looks like you have 'situational insomnia'. Heidi highlighted some excellent pointers for insomnia in general. These will be helpful as well in getting sleep. Try not to 'think too much' about your sleep or looking at clock/watch all the time. Try not to 'try to sleep'. A short course of sleep aids like Ambien or sonata (zaleplon) may be helpful and talk to your doctor to prescribe this for you. Try to find out the 'situation' that lead to this sleep problem and see if you can address that though we are all aware of life's event that may or may not be so easily addressed.

Here : Here are some basic recommendations for getting good quality sleep: 1. Maintain a regular bedtime and awakening time schedule including weekends. Get up about the same time every day, regardless of what time you fell asleep. 2. Establish a regular, relaxing bedtime routine. Relaxing rituals prior to bedtime many include a warm bath or shower, aroma therapy, reading, or listening to soothing music. 3. Sleep in a room that is dark, quiet, comfortable, and cool; sleep on comfortable mattress and pillows. 4. Use your bedroom only for sleep and sex. Have work materials, computers, and tvs in another room. 5. Finish eating at least 2-3 hours prior to your regular bedtime. 6. Avoid caffeine within 6 hours; alcohol & smoking within 2 hours of bedtime. Avoid heavy use of alcohol. 7. Exercise regularly; finish at least a few hours before bedtime. 8. Avoid naps. 9. Go to bed only when sleepy. Lay in bed only for sleeping, not for work or watching tv. 10. Designate another time to write down problems & possible solutions in the late afternoon or early evening, not close to bedtime. 11. After 10-15 minutes of not being able to get to sleep, go to another room to read or watch tv until sleepy. Some over the counter sleep medications can lead to rebound (worse) insomnia if you take them for very long. Try good "sleep hygiene" before you reach for medications. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
