In brief: See your doctor

I recommend consulting your doctor before starting any natural remedies as insomnia can be a symptom of another condition, such as depression, anxiety or sleep apnea.
You should go to bed at the same time every night, get some sunlight and exercise during the day, and minimize your intake of caffeine, stimulants and alcohol. Taking magnesium, calcium, zinc, melatonin, or valerian may help.

It akways a good idea to talk to your doctor about any supplements, .
