Attn Murthy Sir: Mom's Insomnia

I am writing this for my Mom.

My mom is suffering from Insomnia. Unable to sleep at night inspite of taking Restyl as prescribed by doctor, warm milk before going to bed. Every 2-3 days she is up all night. The day after the sleepless night is drowsy, headache and inactive, like any sleep deprived person.

Mom is a chronic Renal patient, high BP, uncontrollable shivering in neck, hands, head and body when tensed.

Please help mom with Insomnia.
