It would have been, and still would be, far better to see a counsellor, espeially a CBT style counsellor, to deal with the worries that were keeping you awake, than just swallowing more sleeping pills.
When you have been taking sleping pills for a while, you do tend to have some nights of sleeping less well when you stp them suddenly - but if you wait, you should return to normal sleep soon. And don't assume that some nights with less sleep needs to be a major problem - instead of lying there tossing and turning, get up and read or do some boring task, ansd go back to bed when you feel drowsy
