If you are seeing a psychiatrist, you should expect to be asked questions about why YOU think you're not sleeping. Almost everybody has the occassional night or two of insomnia, but when it goes on for weeks, there is most often some underlying cause. The psychiatrist will try to uncover that cause and help you deal with it.
He may well give you something to help you sleep in the meantime on a short term basis.
And unless a doctor prescribed the laxotnail for you, you will hopefully get a lecture about taking potent benzos on your own.
Bottom line.........what you can expect is that you will shortly be sleeping soundly most hopefully without the aid of medication.
You might want to check out our Insomnia Forum. You could talk at night when you're all awake! LOL (I know, NOT funny to you. Sorry)
