In brief: Insomnia
Insomnia is a common but complex problem that affects a large number of people.
There are numerous causes, and it is important to analyze all the causes and then treat the cause. You may need professional help with this. Melatonin in small doses of 1 or 2 mg at bedtime may help but it depends on the cause of the insomnia. I advise you do not take regular sleeping pills as these do not help you.
