In brief: See your doctor

Long term use of sleep meds can be dangerous.
If you are constantly taking any meds for sleeping, please see your physician who will need to determine any underlying problems that may need to be addressed.

In brief: Insomnia

It is a sleep disorder that make it difficult to fall asleep or to maintain sleep.
As an adult you need 7-8 hours of restful sleep. To feel not rested in the morning makes you fatigue, stressed and anxious. Sleep hygiene, behavioral changes, and finally medication could be very helpful. Rec.: see a sleep specialist for sleep study and evaluation.
