Sleepless Nights
Hi,

I recently been have sleepless nights, sometimes I get up at 01:00am and walk around and cannot sleep. I dont drink alcohol, nor do I have much cafeine at work, but I am really stressed at work.

I've been to the doc and she prescribed Dormicum for a week only. To date the medication is not helping, I get up when the dogs bark, cars screech and small noises at night after taking the medcation.

What is the next level of medication I can get?
