Thank you for posting your query.

Your husband requires evaluation by a neurologist to decide the cause of insomnia. If no cause is identified, it is referred to as primary insomnia.

In Mumbai, you could consult Dr Shirish Hastak at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani hospital or Dr Gautam Tripathi at Hiranandani Hospital.

For primary insomnia, there are several good medications, such as zolpidem (zolfresh or stilnoct), etc. Your doctor would be able to prescribe the best.

Best wishes,
