In the case that you would like a medication to help fall asleep and help you stay asleep for the night; the best sleeping tablets for you would be Zopiclone (Imovane/Zimovane) or Zolpidem (Ambien/Stilnoct).

It is normal to experience sleepless nights from time to time, but if sleepless nights are a regular occurrence, and you are not getting enough hours sleep then this can very quickly become a serious health problem.
When other attempts to cure a patient’s insomnia have failed, a doctor may prescribe sleep medicine.
Insomnia and our mental health are very closely connected as while we sleep this gives our body (and mind) time to recharge. When people get insufficient hours of sleep, they will wake up feeling drowsy the next day.
Over time this extra stress on the body can lead to emotional problems such as feelings of irritation and anger, and more serious psychological mental health problems such as anxiety and depression.
