I have been noticing that I have been gradually sleeping less and less every night, to the point where last night I only got about half an hour of sleep. I haven't changed my sleeping pattern and I avoid caffeine as well. However, I am diagnosed with depression so I take medicine for that, plus all of my medicine for my bad sinus infection. Plus I am under a severe amount of stress, too...

From WebMD: Insomnia has many possible causes, including stress, anxiety, poor sleep habits, depression, disorders of the internal clock (such as jet lag), and many medications.

So what should I do? I NEED all of the medicine I take now. It would be bad if I took sleeping medicine too, right?

I would definitely advise against taking sleep meds with all the medication you're on now.

here's what we have on Sleep and Insomnia

please talk to your doctor about your change in sleeping habits.
