Brief Answer:
Insomnia needs medical attention.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

I am sorry to hear about your condition. You have insomnia along with high blood pressure. Certain medication like Zolpidem (prescription medicine) can provide relief. I would insist you to visit a doctor without any further delay.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I could help further.
