In brief: Only If Ongoing

People often have nights with decreased sleep.
Also, some people have chronic insomnia without depression. However, if you have had continued problems with sleep, you will want consider the possibility of depression if you also have some of the following: depressed mood, decreased interests, decreased energy or concentration, appetite changes, thoughts of hopelessness or death.
