Yes, you should tell your doc --- not only must he know when repeating the prescription, but he may want to advise you about how best to use them --- not only as regards dose, but also such things as the adviseability of taking a drug holiday, and not using them every night, lest you become dependent on them, and start to experience worse sleep when you try to stop them
