Sleeping pills are not the answer to insomnia - your body gets used to them within a matter of days, and they lose their effect.

There are many different causes of insomnia and, logically, each one is managed differently. You should get to see a sleep doctor who can diagnose your condition correctly, and then help you with the correct management for your particular problem.
