Consultation

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

There are two approaches to insomnia caused by anxiety. The first is medication such as Trazodone, but this carries risks of over sedation.

A better approach is CBT-i, cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. I would search for a therapist who can provide weekly therapy based in CBT-i to treat your sleep issues effectively without medication.

Hope I have answered your query.
