There is also an active discussion group on the Sleep Foundation website, where there are many people with different ideas about what the sleep problem is.
I have discussed a few different sleep problems previously, like insomnia, restless leg syndrome, and sleep apnea. The most common one is not much different from those. People often say they wake up "before" their bodies go to sleep. That is not true, there is a difference between going to sleep and waking up. In sleep disorders, your body tries to wake you up, but it doesn't do it because your brain is asleep. You need to have a very clear understanding of your sleep cycle.
You don't have to go through a long day of getting up for work, going to a doctor's office, and going home. In your typical night sleep you are fully asleep. If your body is asleep, then your mind is asleep. The next step is to go to bed. You do this when you are not at work, if you have children, or if your body needs rest.
No, you don't need to take any drugs at all.
