Expectations (prognosis) 

Most people are able to sleep by practicing good sleep hygiene. See a doctor if you have insomnia that does not improve.

Complications 

Daytime sleepiness is the most common complication of insomnia. There is also evidence that a lack of sleep can lower your immune system's ability to fight infections. 

A lack of sleep is also a common cause of auto accidents. If you are driving and feel sleepy, take a break. 

Calling your health care provider 

Call your doctor if insomnia has become a problem.
