It's been going on for a while . I first got it when I was 17years old but it was for a few weeks then I returned to sleep normal but when I turned 19 I been having it for months and it doesn't go away. I fall asleep about 5am even if I try early it won't work and I wake up at 7am and sometimes I don't get sleep at all. I'm just worried because I'm really trying to do good in school. No I have no stress or worries at all.

Brief Answer:
Zolpidem or Zopiclone can be used for sleep.

Detailed Answer:
Hello again

Since there are no ongoing stress or worries, you are healthy young male so I don't think there is any significant need to take treatment for long. You have primary insomnia and the symptoms will improve in some time. Improve your sleep hygiene and you will see improvement in sleep.

For some time you can think of taking drugs like Zolpidem or Zopiclone which will help in sleep onset and in some days you can gradually stop taking medicines. You can talk with a doctor for these medicines.

Thanks and Take care
