Sleeping disorder

From last few years I am unable to sleep properly, infact I am sleeping for only 4hrs. But from last 1yr I am totally not sleeping nor feeling sleepy. I hardly sleep for 2hrs or so, also feel very low and somehow depressed. I feel like having sleeping pills n also have tried using pills to sleep but still I am unable to sleep. Somehow for sound sleep I sometimes takes Benadryl and mostly have Cyphon to ger my sleep. Normal .75mg dosage dnt work, even I have tried having 2 tablets (.75mg each) to get my sleep but still I could not sleep. Now only Cyphon can help me getting sound sleep. Please help me in getting my sleep as I am feeling few changes in me like I am getting hyper day by day in ever talk and cant control my emotions and becoming short temper.

You seem to be suffering from a psychiatric condition, where your sleep problem is one of the symptoms. You need to see a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation. The right treatment plan can then be worked out. In the meantime, you may benefit from home remedies like drinking warm milk at night, practising  relaxation or breathing techniques. Putting an eye patch to block off light also helps . Keep off electronic gadgets and TV nearing bed time and try to maintain a bed time routine. A warm shower before bed may also help. Good luck!
