Brief Answer:
Need to know whether primary or secondary insomnia.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have gone through your query and understand your concern towards the treatment of insomnia.First, I would like to know whether it is primary or secondary insomnia.

If it is primary, you can follow sleep hygiene techniques like
Avoid coffee, tea and other beverages after 4 pm.
Restrict your bedroom only for sleep, other than office or stress related work.Avoid heavy exercise just before sleep.
Perform moderate exercise in the day.

If the insomnia is secondary to any depressive or anxiety symptoms, it has to be treated with antidepressants or anti-anxiety drugs.

Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Soujanya, Psychiatrist
