Our expert says:
Sleeping tablets will not work on a long-term basis - your body very rapidly becomes used to them. You need to be assessed by a sleep doctor, who will firstly try to determine the cause of the problem. After that, the best approach is using a technique called cognitive behavioural therapy, which does not involve medication, and which works much better.
