Insomnia is quite a common issue and serial is very notorious for such symptoms. You can either reduce the dose or consult your doctor for another safer prescription like low dose anxiety tics. Benadryl is easily available over the counter and not sure of its in availability seek a pharmacist in this regard.try some cognitive sleep therapies and modify diet and lifestyle like avoiding caffeine and beverages. Regular exercise. Taking it easy, keeping a regular sleep time and routine for all daily activities.seek a sleep disorder specialist and let them help you with your insomnia further.
