Before you can get advice from peeps, best to let them know what your sleep patterns are like, what time do you go to bed, what do you do before bed, eat, drink, etc.

Now I Can Sleep
I started having sleeping problems last july when I left the company I had been with for 15 years. My doc tried ambien and then sonata with limited short term success. However, these drugs are additive and for short term use only. My problem became chronic and that's when I discovered an alternate solution. I remembered that when I was younger and I smoked a little pot that all I wanted to do was lay down and sleep. So I tried pot for the first time in 20 years and it worked. About 3 months ago I tried "a hit" of pot after I got home from work around 6 pm, by 9 pm I was in bed sleeping, really sleeping. Now all I do is take one hit after the kids are in bed and I have a wonderful night of sleep. Let me make it clear that I am not promoting the use of illegal drugs but this is what worked for me. Pot may not work for you but it has worked so well I had to share this with others.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you to have thyroid function tests and sleep studies to rule out organic cause. Observe sleep hygiene and avoid late night meal.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
