Psychiatrist Dr. B Raghavendra's  Response
And with regards to getting discharged from the army because of Insomnia, my guess would be that the army doctor needs to be convinced that you have Insomnia and that it is too severe and that it is not responding to treatment, for which you will need to consult your own doctors, I presume.
