I am 39yars old. I am married with kids. I am a technician. It is almost 4years that I have been suffering for INSOMNIA.I have been attending hospital and doctor diagnosed DEPRESSION.I have taken many sleeping drugs but my insomnia still persist.Infact at times I may not sleep despite that I have taken sleeping drugs. I can not sleep naturally and if I did not sleep at night I will not get my self the second day. There is a saying that someone can not cheat nature. In my own case reverse is the case I can not sleep at night and I will not sleep during the day. I may be feeling like sleeping during the day but if I attempt to sleep the sleep will not come. The current sleeping tablet that I am taking now is (AMITRIPTYLINE) I take 100mg at night every day.
Please kindly help me out of my health problem.

Hi Ajenifuja and welcome to WebMD,

It sounds like you need to keep talking with your doctors about treatment.

I also have insomnia and know how debilitating it can be so I do a lot to help myself (dark room, cool body, a fan blowing for white noise, no watching tv in bed, etc.). What kinds of things, aside from medication, do you do for yourself?

I hope that others here will share some ideas with you.
