Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello thanks for choosing HCM for your health related queries

I can understand your concern. A lot of individuals face problems in sleeping when they try hard to sleep. So first thing I would advise you to improve your sleep hygiene. Don't try to sleep again and again and try not to think about sleeping on bed. Sleep is a spontaneous phenomenon and individuals sleep naturally. As some times due to office timing you have to sleep during day time in such case if the problem of insomnia is persistent then consult a psychiatrist. Medicines like Melatonin or Ramelteon etc can help to control these abnormal sleep cycles and will help in sleep. These medicines are very useful in shift workers insomnia. Consult a doctor for prescription.

Thanks, Hope this helps you. Take care
