In brief: Somnorifics

Sleep aides, whether they are otc or prescriptive have specific uses.
There are very few indicated for long term use. Of those available the one chosen will depend on the cause of insomnia, - situational, depressive, etc, the patient and other meds and the physician. They work differently in different people.
