26 year old suffering from sleeplessness. Tried Zepam, lunazep and nexito. Concerned about addiction. Advice?

Namasthe sir, Iam Arjun and iam 26yrs old. I have been suffering with sleeplessness from past 5 yrs. But in the last 3rd year it affected me very much, resulting to sleeplessness for 1 week. Then i went to the Psychiartist. He first prescribed me with Zepam for 30days. After 30 days i stopped it and spent the normal life. But the inner disease in me is there. But with the fear of Sleeping pills will affect the life, I ignored it. When i didn t get nice sleep or when i feel weak, i use to take Lunazep tablet. It has continued for the 3rd year. With the habbit of drinking alcohol i use to drink on the day when i feel weak. I have the problem of severe body heat too. After my marriage in May 2011 again with the problem of sleeplessness and sexual disfunction, I went to the doctor and i reported the same. Then he prescribed me with Nexito Plus and TFil. Again I ignored the prescribed medicines. But with the problem with its peak from the last 3months I went to the doctor, He then suggested me with Nextito Plus for 30days. After 30 days, I again tried to ignore it. But i could not. Then again with the doctors advice Iam contiuing Nexito Plus. What my fear is that I may depend on it. Why i could not get normal sleep as others. Why I always feel weak. Whether it may affect on my rest of the life. If I continue with Nexito Plus then for how may days I has to? sir, Please help me with it...

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi...what is the exact reason for which you have been prescribed these medication is not advice is that you should not keep stopping medication abruptly and repeatedly should take medicine as prescribed and should be taking these medications only by a psychiatrist as they are expert in prescribing them. They know the dosing and duration well and give in a way that prevent development of addiction don't worry about that.
