Hello, and thank you for contacting us

We truly understand your concern with regard to your current condition. However, our views would only reflect based on the description that you have brought forth into the forum.

Insomnia dan depression are two common symptoms of a psychiatrical disorder that (more often than not) correlates to one another. However, in response to your problem, thorough history taking and (if needed) examination must be done to have a better working diagnosis - to ensure if any medication or therapy is currently needed. In addition, treatment for such conditions is usually tailored specifically to each individual. Therefore we couldn’t guarantee any medication will be prescribed prior to proper consultation

Need helps with your personal dilema? Our psychiatrist is here for you.

Hence I urged you to have the courage to talk to the people you trust the most, to mediate the depression as early as possible. You can also try to contact a verified organization called Befrienders to help you manage these issues before getting formal help from your nearby clinic or hospitals.

With regards to your sleep issues, you may also try to

  • stay away from factors that trigger sleep reluctance
  • don’t be too hard on your self and learn to relax
  • ensure the condition of the bedroom is comfortable, cosy & clean
  • drink warm milk or honey water prior to going to bed
  • listening to sleeping music whilst asleep
  • ensure your sleep hygiene is intact
  • learn the breathing exercise

Get a good rest with a restful sleep.

With that being said we encourage you to consult with the nearest clinic or hospital in your area. In addition you can also talk directly to our doctors by using this link. (DoctorOnCall) Thank you.
