A patient regains sleep via cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, reports WebMD.

I was very pleased to learn that there are methods to help with insomnia, and that I didn’t have to continue to try new medications that always failed. So we started by assessing my problem. I stopped all sleep medications and kept a 2-week log, charting what time I went to bed, how long it took to fall asleep, how often I woke up at night, how long I stayed awake during those interruptions, when I finally woke up in the morning, and when I took naps.
