Dear friend,high blood pressure and high cholesterol causes headache that can be behind your father's sleeplessness.also that amound of alcohol in blood has an addon effect on headache.then withdrawal of sleeping pill has made the thing worse for him as he has become habituated with certain pill but currently not getting it,leading him to a insomnia state.
