That is exactly how people die of an overdose...

You get frustrated and take too many pills and may still have trouble getting to sleep >> HOWEVER WHEN YOU DO SLEEP YOU MAY NOT BREATHE ADEQUATELY !!! That is the danger..

What you describe is an overdose I fear and you should go to the ER to be checked and monitored

The degree of difficulty to get to sleep is unusual but you need evaluation as to WHY that is the case!

You might have a condition such as Bipolar depression which may cause this resistant type of insomnia..

You need medical attention > NOW however..

I hope that this is helpful for you.

Let me know if you have further questions

I will be happy to get back with you.
