I hope someone out there can give me some insight. I am having trouble sleeping the night after my four-day break from work. I have tried Ambien (works but expensive), Benadryl (hangover), and just lying there awake (no energy next day). I think it'll be better if I can figure out why this is happening. Any ideas?

Just a few questions first
How old are you?
What stressors are new in your life (last 60 months to 2yrs) you may not want to mention them here but write them down.
Things like pet died, death in family, a move, a job change, new debt... etc.
What activities of daily living have changed in your life in the past 6months to 2 yeears
Do you exersize on a regular basis and what type do you do and when do you perform this activity? Has there been a change in this pattern?
I think you may know where I am going with this.
Take an inventory what ever kind you want to call it. It may identify something that is trigering this change in sleep pattern
Drugs...would rather do without if at all possible.
That is Where I would start.
