Dear Patrick

I cannot comment on medication aspects as that is not within my scope of practice but I would encourage you to discuss your concerns with your medical practitioner. Sleep problems may relate to a general medical condition and/or a mental health difficulty such as mood or anxiety disorders.

Best regards
