Insomia even after taking Stilnox

Good day,

My husband first started taking 1 stilnox at about 8.30-9.00p.m and it would last the night, then started waking up at 1.00am and not sleep again, so started taking a second Stilnox. Last night he took 1 at 8.30pm another at 11.00pm and a 3rd at 2.00am which did not give him solid sleep he still woke up continually. Its starting to effect my sleep as I'  m a light sleeper. He has just stopped taking an antidepressant on his own, deciding he no longer needs it. Could it be that.

The chemistry of sleep and the chemistry of depression are the same. Waking in the early hours of the morning is a very common sign of depression. Sleeping pills stop having an effect if they are used every night. I would suggest that he should see his psychiatrist again, and not make treatment decisions on his own.
